On the other hand, a crystal property such as electrical

a relation between two measurable quantities (the electric field and the current

density) both of which have to be specified in direction as well as in magnitude.

On the other hand, a crystal property such as electrical

**conductivity**is defined asa relation between two measurable quantities (the electric field and the current

Take electrical

**conductivity**as an example (Fig. 1.7). We apply a field E in acrystal. There will then, in general, be components of j both parallel and

transverse to E. The

**conductivity**o in the direction of E is then defined to be thecomponent of j ...
