Now Hersam, a Walter P. Murphy Professor of Materials Science and Engineering in Northwestern’s McCormick School of Engineering, and his team are bringing the world closer to […]
source: Capacitor Faks blog Class II dielectrics are made of ferroelectric materials. The most commonly used materials are alkaline earth titanates. Most Class II dielectrics are based on barium titanate (BaTiO3). These dielectrics exhibit less stability but higher volumetric efficiency than Class I types, and are very commonly used in electronic circuits for coupling, decoupling, […]
