Debye relaxation is the dielectric relaxation response of an ideal, noninteracting population of dipoles to an alternating external electric field. It is usually expressed in the complex permittivity of a medium as a function of the field's frequency ω:
Additional recommended knowledge
where is the permittivity at the high frequency limit, where is the static, low frequency permittivity, and τ is the characteristic relaxation time of the medium.
This relaxation model was named after the chemist Peter Debye.
