about this item
This book provides a comprehensive overview of the field of dielectrics. The new edition covers the most recent advances in theory and experiments and discusses non-traditional applications. It also includes four new chapters: Nanodielectrics, Breakdown in Solids, Breakdown in Liquid Dielectrics and Testing Methods. The book covers polarization phenomena in dielectrics, the complex dielectric constant in an alternating electric field, dielectric relaxation and interfacial polarization, the measurement of absorption and desorption currents in time domains and high-field conduction phenomena.
