Tailoring of Nanocomposite Dielectrics : From Fundamentals to Devices and Applications (Hardcover)
about this item
Nanocomposite dielectrics are advanced materials that exhibit excellent characteristics that can exceed those of the original constituent components: organic polymer matrices and added inorganic nanofillers. Such excellence is considered to originate from the dominant role of the interfaces between the two materials. Research into nanocomposite dielectrics as promising future dielectrics started in the early 2000s and has proved their many advantages over conventional insulating materials with respect to preparation and characterization. Now we are in a new stage in which we can tailor such nanocomposite interfaces to meet device and application requirements.
This book illustrates interfacial properties, preparation, characterization, devices, and applications from the standpoint of nano-interfacial tailoring. Since the primary focus of the book relates to the use of nanocomposite dielectrics in electrical applications, the chapters are devoted to directly relevant topics, such as surface and bulk breakdown processes. However, the mechanisms that underpin such behavior are not unique and, consequently, the book also addresses related topics that range from the chemistry of polymer and nanocomposite degradation to the simulation of charge transport dynamics in disordered materials, in order to present a multi- and interdisciplinary approach to the area.
