Because polarization cannot follow an electric field in a high-frequency field, permittivity has a dependence on the frequency. This dependence is called dielectric dispersion. It is very important for the application of dielectric materials and the analysis of polarization systems.
Additional recommended knowledge
When the frequency becomes higher:
In the wavelength region below ultraviolet, permittivity approaches the constant ε0 in every substance, where ε0 is the permittivity of the free space. Because permittivity indicates the strength of the relation between an electric field and polarization, if a polarization process loses its response, permittivity decreases.
