Abstract

The dispersion equations for polariton waves in dielectric ionic crystal with the absorption are obtained. The self-consistent solutions of the system of Maxwell electromagnetic field equations and the equations of motion of ions have been used. The elastic and absorption properties of the crystal are taken into account in the ion equations of motion. It is shown that the separated equations of motion for positive and negative ions allow obtaining all branches of phonon and polariton spectrum by the example of the ionic crystal of cubic symmetry at the terahertz range. It has been shown that the variation of absorption in the crystal leads to changing of the character of spectrum branch and the polariton velocities.
