Abstract
The US Ferroics and Texas State University team will analyse theoretically and model the behaviour and feasibility of high energy density storage capacitors based upon giant dielectric constant CCTO materials. We will determine the feasibility of non-linear CCTO based super capacitors. by optimizing material properties and processing as both ceramic and near single crystal solgel film diodes. We will characterize surface, structural, mechanical adn electrical properties. We propose to demonstrate the feasibility of practical devices that would exceed the requirements of the SBIR topic. BENEFIT: Availability of affordable CCTO high energy density ceramic or solgel supercapacitors will revolutionize energy storage capacity /densities and delivery rates for AF and other DOD applications, which include hybrid drive systems rail guns and aircraft and missile launch systems. Dual use beneficiaries include the automobile industry, electrical power industries and many others involving machine drive systems.
