Abstract
THIS PROJECT WILL MEASURE FOR THE FIRST TIME THE DIELECTRIC PROPERTIES OF SEVEN CATEGORIES OF CERAMIC MATERIALS AT 2 K TO DEVELOP CAPACITOR COMPONENTS FOR DETECTORS AND DETECTOR ARRAYS. ALL CERAMIC SAMPLES ARE IN THE FORM OF MULTILAYER CAPACITORS OR CAN BE MADE IN THIS FORM BY CONVENTIONAL CERAMIC PROCESSING. THE CATEGORIES ARE BATIO3-SRTIO3 CERAMICS; PROPRIETARY MANUFACTURERS' COMPOSITIONS; CD-PB-NB-TA OXIDE CERAMICS; PB-MG-SC-TA OXIDE CERAMICS; SRTIO3 GLASS-CERAMIC; UNUSUAL SPINEL-BASED CERAMICS HAVING VERY LARGE SPECIFIC HEATS AT 2 K; AND A SUPERIONIC CONDUCTOR. THE DEPENDENCE OF THE DIELECTRIC CONSTANTS AND LOSS TANGENTS OF THE SAMPLES ON TEMPERATURE, FREQUENCY (UP TO 1 MHZ), AND ELECTRIC FIELD WILL BE MEASURED AT 2 K, AS WILL THE ACCONDUCTIVITY. ALL SAMPLES ARE ON HAND AT CERAMPHYSICS OR WILL BE DONATED BY CERTAIN MANUFACTURERS AT NO COST. THE GOAL OF THE PHASE I RESEARCH IS TO IDENTIFYTHE MOST FAVORABLE MATERIALS FOR SPECIFIC CAPACITOR APPLICATIONS IN DETECTOR TECHNOLOGIES. A PHASE II PROGRAM WOULD INVOLVE FABRICATING THESE MATERIALS INTO IMPROVED, CERAMIC, MULTILAYER CAPACITORS FOR TESTING WITH DETECTORS.
