A Differential Form of the Kramers-Kronig Relation for Determining a Lorentz-Type of Refractive Index

The integral forms of the Kramers-Kronig (KK) relations that relate the real and imaginary parts, n' and n", of a refractive index require the integral to be conducted over the full spectrum. In this paper, we derive a differential form of the KK relation that removes a need of knowing n" at all frequencies (omega) to calculate n', which is more practically beneficial in measurements. Moreover, we show that, in a finite frequency range, our differential form of the KK relation can generate a resonant effective n' for an artificial medium composed of a periodic structure more accurately than do the integral forms of the KK relations, making use of n" obtained from a full-wave simulation.
