Abstract:

CURRENT CAPACITOR SYSTEMS ARE MATERIALS LIMITED. CURRENT MATERIALS HAVE LOW ENERGY STORAGE DENSITIES AND ARE GENERALLY LARGER, HEAVY, AND DIFFICULT TO MAINTAIN. A SYNTHETIC PROGRAM IS PROPOSED TO "MOLECULARLY ENGINEER" AN ORGANIC/INORGANIC GRAFT COPLYMER MATERIAL TO HAVE HIGH, NONLINEAR DIELECTRIC STRENGTH; HIGH, NONLINER DIELECTRIC CONSTANT; AND LIGHT WEIGHT FOR USE AS IMPREGNANTS IN CAPACITORS AND DIELECTRIC FILMS. THE SYNTHETIC PROGRAM WAS DEVELOPED BY CONSIDERING MATERIAL GUIDELINES WHICH INCLUDE: 1) INTRINSIC DIELECTRIC STRENGTH, 2) DIELECTRIC CONSTANT, 3) LOW DISSIPATION FACTORS, 4) PROCESSABILITY, 5) USE IN A BROAD RANGE OF APPLICATION ENVIRONMENTS, AND 6) MECHANICAL STRENGTH. THE NONLINEAR DIELECTRIC POLYMERS THAT ARE SYNTHESIZED AND WILL BE FABRICATED INTO A UNIQUE MORPHOLOGY THAT ENHANCES THEIR UTILITY. THE DIELECTRIC PROPOERTIES OF THIS NOVEL MATERIAL/MORPHOLOGY SYSTEM WILL BE EVALUATED ON A LABORATORY SCALE. DEVELOPMENT OF THIS TECHNOLOGY WOULD GREATLY REDUCE THE SIZE, WEIGHT, AND COMPLEXITY OF CAPACITORS. THE ANTICIPATED RESULTS OF PHASE I WILL BE MATERIALS CAPABLE OF ENERGY DENSITIES OF TENS OF KJ/KG, DIELECTRIC CONSTANTS GREATER THAN 10, LOW DISSIPATION FACTORS, AND CAPACITY OF IN THE MULTII-MEGAJOULE RANGE.
