Minkowski Momentum Resulting from a Vacuum-Medium Mapping Procedure, and a Brief Review of Minkowski Momentum Experiments

21 Oct 2016 Brevik Iver

A discussion is given on the interpretation and physical importance of the Minkowski momentum in macroscopic electrodynamics (essential for the Abraham-Minkowski problem). We focus on the following two facets: (1) Adopting a simple dielectric model where the refractive index $n$ is constant, we demonstrate by means of a mapping procedure how the electromagnetic field in a medium can be mapped into a corresponding field in vacuum...
