Abstract
A SYNTHETIC PROGRAM IS PROPOSED TO ENGINEER POLYMER MATERIALS THAT HAVE A HIGH DIELECTRIC STORAGE DENSITY, LARGE DIELECTRIC CONSTANT, LOW DIELECTRIC DISSIPATION, AND LIGHT WEIGHT FOR PULSE FORMING LINES FOR PULSED POWER APPLICATIONS. THE SYNTHETIC PROGRAM WAS DEVELOPED BY CONSIDERING MATERIAL GUIDELINES WHICH INCLUDE: 1) INTRINSIC DIELECTRIC STRENGTH; 2) DIELECTRIC CONSTANT; 3) LOW DISSIPATION FACTORS; 4) PROCESSIBILITY; 5) ABILITY TO BE USED IN A BROAD RANGE OF AMBIENT CONDITIONS; AND 6) MECHANICAL STRENGTH. THE SYNTHESIZED POLYMERS WILL SUBSEQUENTLY BE FABRICATED INTO A UNIQUE MORPHOLOGY THAT ENHANCES THE UTILITY OF THESE MATERIALS. THE DIELECTRIC PROPERTIES OF THIS NOVEL MATERIAL/MORPHOLOGY SYSTEM WILL BE EVALUATED ON A LABORATORY SCALE AT HIGH VOLTAGE. DEVELOPMENT OF THIS TECHNOLOGY WOULD GREATLY REDUCE THE SIZE, WEIGHT AND COMPLEXITY OF PULSE POWER SYSTEMS. THE ANTICIPATED RESULTS OF PHASE I WILL BE MATERIALS CAPABLE OF PULSE VOLTAGES EXCEEDING 5 KV/MIL (2MV/CM) AND WITH VERY HIGH DIELECTRIC ENERGY STORAGE DENSITIES AND HIGH DIELECTRIC CONSTANT.
