Title: APPLICATION OF CONDUCTIVE POLYMER TECHNOLOGY TO THE PRODUCTION OF A NOVEL MULTILAYER CAPACITOR
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Contract: N/A
Award Amount: $493,000.00
 

Abstract:

ONE OF THE FASTEST GROWING TECHNOLOGIES IN THE FIELD OF PASSIVE COMPONENTS IS THE MULTILAYTER CERAMIC CAPACITOR. THIS CAPACITOR IS CURRENTLY PRODUCED BY THE PROCESSING OF ALTERNATE LAYERS OF BARIUM TITANATE CERAMIC DIELECTRIC AND PALLADIUM SILVER, PLATINUM, OR GOLD THICK FILM ELECTRODES. IT IS THE INTENT OF THIS INVESTIGATION TO EVALUATE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING POLYMER BASED AND/OR "CEMENT" TYPE DIELECTRIC AREAS AND SYNTHETIC METAL OR POLYMER THICK FILM METAL ELECTRODES. THE ENTIRE SYSTEM COULD THEN BE PROCESSED WITH LITTLE OR NONE OF THE CLASSICAL FIRING TECHNIQUES NECESSARY FOR PROCESSING STANDARD CERAMIC CAPACITORS. IN ADDITION, THE USE OF PALLADIUM, GOLD,AND PLATINUM COULD BE REDUCED OR ELIMINATED FROM MOST SYSTEMS.
