Abstract : The invention described herein may be manufactured, used, and licensed by or for the Government for governmental purposes without the payment to us of any royalty thereon. This invention relates in general to heterogeneous composites and to their method of making and in particular to a free-standing, flexible heterogeneous composite of insulating polymeric film containing relatively small percentages of electrically conductive polymer wherein the conductive polymer exists as the dispersed phase and to their method of making. Polymers designed with high dielectric constants, low dissipation factors and high electric field breakdown strengths have application as dielectrics in capacitors for communication equipment, computers, and space power systems. Patent applications. (JES)
