Abstract

In this study, we use novel thermal deposition techniques to synthesize films of poly(vinlyidene fluoride), or PVDF, containing nanoparticles of the ceramic titanium dioxide (TiO2). This ferroelectric polymer has shown promise as a capacitor dielectric material, and possible enhanced electrical properties when combined with ceramic nanoparticles. Characterization of these composite films has been performed including chemical structure and microstructure using SFM, XPS, and EDS techniques. Measurements of film parameters such as dielectric constant and breakdown voltage have also been performed, and the dispersion of the ceramic particles within the films has been characterized.
