Research Institution
A six-month, $91,305 Phase I SBIR program is proposed to perform ceramic-composition R&D aimed at cryogenic capacitors for the 120 - 240 K temperature range. Candidate compositions from three families of ceramics will be made under subcontract by NexTech Mat'ls Ltd and measured by CeramPhysics, 120 - 240 K (dielectric constant, loss tangent, frequency dependence, electric-field dependence, dielectric relaxation time). All compositions studied can be manufactured into multilayer ceramic capacitors. The measured database will be analyzed according to a Figure of Merit to downselect four to six optimum compos-itions. These compositions will be recommended for manufacturing development in a Phase II program in collaboration with an identified manufacturer of multilayer ceramic capacitors.
