Towards an understanding of nanometric dielectrics

Nelson, J. K., Fothergill, J., Dissado, L. A. & Peasgood, W. (2002). Towards an understanding of nanometric dielectrics.

Dielectric studies are described aimed at providing an understanding of the charge storage and transport of an epoxy resin containing TiO2 nanoparticles. Comparative results for conventionally filled composites are given, and the results discussed in terms of the underlying physics. It is shown that nanometric fillers mitigate the interfacial polarization characteristic of conventional materials with a reduction in the internal field accumulations.
