Anisotropy of Wood in the Microwave Region
Ziherl, Sasa; Bajc, Jurij; Urankar, Bernarda; Cepic, Mojca
European Journal of Physics, v31 n3 p531-542 May 2010
Wood is transparent for microwaves and due to its anisotropic structure has anisotropic dielectric properties. A laboratory experiment that allows for the qualitative demonstration and quantitative measurements of linear dichroism and birefringence in the microwave region is presented. As the proposed experiments are based on the anisotropy (of wood), which is evident from the observable anisotropic structure of wood, they may serve as a demonstration for explaining the anisotropic properties in crystals in the optical region. (Contains 3 tables and 7 figures.)
