Abstract : This report covers a contract which studied low voltage degradation, the TSPC/DC spectra of Barium Titanate, and the dielectric and electrical properties of BaTiO3 composites (polymer and air), processing of BaTiO3 dielectrics, and the synthesis of relaxor dielectrics from both organometallic and mixed oxide precursors. The measurements were electrical conductivity, dielectric properties, and current-time voltage behavior as a function of chemical composition, temperature, and humidity. Keywords: Capacitors, Ceramic materials, TSPC/DC (Thermally Stimulated Polarization/Depolarization Current). (aw)
