From "Electronic Packaging of High Speed Circuitry", Konsowski and Helland,
" The dominant effects are usually atomic polarization, electronic
polarization, and orientation polarization." They go on to give a brief but
interesting definition for each of these conditions that produce frequency
dependent losses as well as some measurement techniques.
A pretty good SI book to have on your shelf.

Subject: RE: [SI-LIST] : Upper limit of interplane capacitance
Greg - it is a bit of a stretch, but if I go back to my Quantum
Mechanics from years ago, I think the dielectric loss is more of
a sonic phenenon than a photo electric effect. With the photo
electric effect, a packet of energy is obsorbed that is exactly
right to lift an electron from one energy state to another. When
the electron falls back it emits a photon.
With dielectric loss, molecules physicaly vibrate more like a
sound wave. The losses show up as thermal rather than electromagnetic
energy. But you are correct, dielectric loss is a material property.
I'm sure somebody will tell me if this is completely off base...
