BPN535: MEMS Poly/Nano: Nano-Particulate Composite Materials for Energy and Sensing Applications


The goal of this project is to develop a high-K, high breakdown, polymer nanocomposite material system. The novel material is composed of a high dielectric strength polymer seeded with core-shell nanoparticles. This technology will enable the development of low-cost, highly reliable, high energy density ultracapacitor system for energy storage. It is also a possible method to enhance the sensitivity of polymer based infrared sensor.
