Dielectrics in Electric Fields : Tables, Atoms, and Molecules, Hardback Book

Dielectrics in Electric Fields : Tables, Atoms, and Molecules Hardback


Dielectrics in Electric Fields explores the influence of electric fields on dielectric-i.e., non-conducting or insulating-materials, examining the distinctive behaviors of these materials through well-established principles of physics and engineering.

Featuring five new chapters, nearly 200 new figures, and more than 800 new citations, this fully updated and significantly expanded Second Edition:Analyzes inorganic substances with real-life applications in harsh working conditions such as outdoor, nuclear, and space environmentsIntroduces methods for measuring dielectric properties at microwave frequencies, presenting results obtained for specific materialsDiscusses the application of dielectric theory in allied fields such as corrosion studies, civil engineering, and health sciencesCombines in one chapter coverage of electrical breakdown in gases with breakdown in micrometric gapsOffers extensive coverage of electron energy distribution-essential knowledge required for the application of plasma sciences in medical scienceDelivers a detailed review of breakdown in liquids, along with an overview of electron mobility, providing a clear understanding of breakdown phenomenaExplains breakdown in solid dielectrics such as single crystals, polycrystalline and amorphous states, thin films, and powders compressed to form pelletsAddresses the latest advances in dielectric theory and research, including cutting-edge nanodielectric materials and their practical applicationsBlends early classical papers that laid the foundation for much of the dielectric theory with more recent workThe author has drawn from more than 55 years of research studies and experience in the areas of high-voltage engineering, power systems, and dielectric materials and systems to supply both aspiring and practicing engineers with a comprehensive, authoritative source for up-to-date information on dielectrics in electric fields.
