Electrical Properties of Polymers covers topics on the electrical properties of polymers. The book discusses the electrical conduction in polymers; the structure and charge generation in low-dimensions; and the photophysical processes, energy transfer, and photoconduction in polymers. The text also describes the photovoltaic phenomena in organic solids; thermally stimulated discharge current analysis of polymers; and the polymeric electrets. The contact electrification of polymers and its elimination; and the dielectric breakdown phenomena in polymers are also considered. Materials scientists and chemists will find the book invaluable.
