Dielectric properties of epoxy nanocomposites containing TiO2, Al2O3 and ZnO fillers

Fothergill, J., Nelson, J. K. & Fu, M. (2004). Dielectric properties of epoxy nanocomposites containing TiO2, Al2O3 and ZnO fillers. Annual Report - Conference on Electrical Insulation and Dielectric Phenomena, CEIDP, pp. 406-409. doi: 10.1109/CEIDP.2004.1364273


The paper presents results of dielectric spectroscopy and space charge (PEA) measurements on epoxy resin filled with 10% w/w micro- and nano- sized particles of TiO2, Al3O2 and ZnO. The results appear to show that the material from which the nano-particle is made is not highly significant in influencing these results. The results support the proposition that the dielectric properties of such nano-filled composites are controlled by Stern-Gouy-Chapman layers (“interaction zones”) around the particles.
