6 RELATIVITY AND QUANTUM PHYSICS

Relativity and quantum physics may seem out of place in a book on electromagnetics, but each is crucial to the foundations of how electromagnetic fields operate. To a large extent this chapter is an excursion from what is meant to be a practical handbook, but I think the topic is too interesting not to cover. Both relativity and quantum physics are quite fascinating and each will give you a whole new perspective on electromagnetics. Unbeknownst to many people, relativity is at work behind the scenes of many electromagnetic phenomena. Quantum physics may not be necessary for most applications, but it is crucial for understanding lasers, the basis of fiber optics. The photon is known by every technical person as ...
