Abstract
Beltran proposes to develop a new advanced technology for the fabrication of magnetic polymers. One of the possible ways to provide the values of magnetic characteristics required for electronic applications of polymer materials is to utilize polymermaterials in the form of magnetic nanoparticles incorporated in easily available organic polymer matrices. The necessary magnetic and resistance properties can be controlled by the properties of the incorporated nanoparticles, the matrices and theirbonding. Thus, the main technical objective of the Phase I effort is the development of a new approach for the fabrication of magnetic metamaterials with radio frequency (RF) properties suitable for application to integrated RF sensor technologies andsuperior to conventional ferrites by creating magnetic polymers involving nanoparticles of various magnetic materials. The advanced magnetic and resistance properties will be demonstrated by direct measurements of the materials prototypes. The anticipatedbenefits are: possibility of producing large quantities of bulk magnetic polymers; stability of organic polymer matrix in the most hazardous operating conditions; light weight of the materials (at least 2.5 time less than currently utilized materials);possibility of fabricating magnetic polymer materials with advanced radio frequency properties suitable for application to integrated RF sensor technologies; easily machinable; possibility of developing these technology methods for other requirements. Thepotential commercial applications are the fabrication of magnetic metamaterials for radio electronic components, radiation shielding, magnetic refrigeration, magneto-optical memory, polymer wave-guides and amplifiers and magneto-electronics.
