In physics, dielectric relaxation refers to the relaxation response of a dielectric medium to an external electric field of microwave frequencies. This relaxation is often described in terms of permittivity as a function of frequency, which can, for ideal systems, be described by the Debye equation. On the other hand, the distortion related to ionic and electronic polarization shows behavior of the resonance or oscillator type. The character of the distortion process depends on the structure, composition, and surroundings of the sample.
The number of possible wavelengths of emitted radiation due to dielectric relaxation can be equated using Hemmings 1st Law
n: number of different possible wavelengths of emitted radiation
l: number of energy levels (inc. ground level)
