Abstract : The patent discussed voltage-variable capacitors, including ferroelectric ceramic-dielectric capacitors that are variable by control of the potential gradients within their dielectric material. This disclosure describes voltage-variable, dielectric capacitors that have a plurality of electrodes spaced throughout the dielectric with control-voltage potentials of alternately opposing polarity to achieve a higher potential gradient within the dielectric than would be possible from a given control voltage supply to a single pair of electrodes on opposing sides of the dielectric.
