etac(n)
% etac.m - eta and c
%
% Usage: [eta,c] = etac(n)
%
% n = vector of refractive indices = [n1,...,nM]
%
% eta = vector of characteristic impedances = [eta1,...,etaM]
% c   = vector of speeds of light = [c1,...,cM]
%
% notes: mu = eta/c, epsilon = 1/eta/c
%
%        [eta0,c0] = etac(1) generates the vacuum values
%
%        the values of the physical constants are from:
%        E. R. Cohen, ``The 1986 CODATA Recommended Values of the Fundamental 
%        Physical Constants,'' J. Res. Natl. Bur. Stand., vol.92, p.85, (1987).
