Comments on "Relativistic effects on microwave reflectometry" [Phys. Fluids B 4, 3460 (1992)]Funded under: FP2-FUSION 10C
New simple approximate relativistic expressions for the Hermitian part of the dielectric tensor, the real part of the refractive index and the locations of cut-offs have recently been proposed. It was suggested that this approximation would be of use to reflectometry as well as to a number of other applications. This report points out significant limitations in the accuracy of this approximation.
