Electrical Conductivity in Polymer-based Composites offers detailed information on all aspects of conductive composites. Conductive composites offer many benefits in comparison to traditional conductive materials, and have a broad range of applications, including in electronic packaging, capacitors, thermistors, fuel cell devices, dielectrics, piezoelectric functions and ferroelectric memories.
The book begins with introductions to the theory of electrical conductivity and to the different categories of conductive composites, describing percolation threshold, tunneling effect and other phenomena in the field. Subsequent chapters present thorough coverage of the key phases in the development and use of conductive composites, including manufacturing methods, external parameters, applications, modelling and testing methods.
This is an essential source of information for materials scientists and engineers working in the fields of polymer technology, processing, and engineering, enabling them to improve manufacture and testing methods, and to benefit fully from applications. The book also provides industrial and academic researchers with a comprehensive and up-to-date understanding of conductive composites and related issues.
