Conductivity of a periodic two-component system of rhombic type

The conductivity and the distribution of electric field, current, and charge density in a periodic two-component system composed of rhombs with an arbitrary vertex angle of 2α are investigated. The effective conductivity of such a medium is represented by a tensor with components σ eff 11 (α) and σ eff 22 (α) in the principal axes that satisfy the Dykhne relation σ eff 11 (α) σ eff 22 (α)=σ 1σ2, where σ1, σ2 are the isotropic conductivities of media 1 and 2. In addition, the relation σ eff 22 (α)=σ eff 11 (π/2−α) is satisfied. The principal axes are directed along the diagonals of the rhombs. It is shown that there are three lines in the rectangle 0<α ≤π/2,−1<Z<1((Z1−σ2)/(σ 12)) on which the charge density is expressed in terms elliptic functions. An explicit expression is obtained for all physical quantities on these lines.
