Functional Behaviour of Materials: Dielectric Materials

Barber, Z. (Zoe) ; Kalorkoti, A. (Anna)

Interactive Resource

On completion of this tutorial you should: Understand the meaning of the terms dielectric constant, dielectric loss and dielectric breakdown. Recognise that the properties of dielectrics are due to polarisation and understand how this polarisation arises on the microscopic scale. Understand how material structure, temperature and frequency affect the properties of dielectrics. Be aware of some practical applications of dielectric materials.
