Dielectric Polymer Nanocomposites provides the first in-depth discussion of nano-dielectrics, an emerging and fast moving topic in electrical insulation. The book provides an overview of the background, principles and promise of nanodielectrics, as well as a discussion of the processing of nanocomposites. Special considerations are also given to clay based processes, mechanical, thermal and electric properties and surface properties, as well as erosion resistance. Carbon nanotubes are discussed as a means of creation of nonlinear conductivity. Editor J. Keith Nelson brings together the leading minds in the field, whose contributions to the book also: Discusses the background, principles and importance of nano-dielectric composites Includes complete coverage of nanodielectric composites such as cryogenic applications, high voltage stress grading materials and applications in the capacitor industry Provides detailed coverage on the processing of nanocomposites Dielectric Polymer Nanocomposites is perfect for academics and researchers working in or interested in learning more about this growing field.
