Nanocomposite Dielectric Film
Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to demonstrate the advantage of using a coupling agent to bind ceramic dielectric nanofillers uniformly within a high temperature polymer matrix. On the proposed Phase I program, PSI will enhance the energy density of nanocomposite dielectric polymer films by utilizing oxide ceramic nanoparticle fillers with a commercially available chemistry that binds to both the ceramic and polymer components. During the Phase I effort, PSI will demonstrate the technology to produce lab scale dielectric films and characterize the films for permittivity, dielectric loss and film resistance. PSI will be assisted by Prof. George Rossetti at the Institute of Materials Science, University of Connecticut on the proposed program. During a Phase I Option, we will perform film pilot scale runs at our partner, Frontier Industrial Technology. A Phase II program will include further films scale-up, characterization of defects and failure mode, and fabrication of 10 J rolled capacitors with our partner, Arizona Capacitors.
