Theory of New Transients and Optical Phenomena in Spatially Dispersive Media
An integral representation for the linear transients of coupled propagating modes in a spatially dispersive medium is investigated. New “exciton precursors” are predicted as well as altered signal velocities. Numerical estimates are made for CdS and ZnSe.
