Part 1 is particularly concerned with physical properties, electrical ageing and modeling with topics such as the physics of charged dielectric materials, conduction mechanisms, dielectric relaxation, space charge, electric ageing and life end models and dielectric experimental characterization. Part 2 concerns some applications specific to dielectric materials: insulating oils for transformers, electrorheological fluids, electrolytic capacitors, ionic membranes, photovoltaic conversion, dielectric thermal control coatings for geostationary satellites, plastics recycling and piezoelectric polymers.
Juan Martinez Vega is Professor at Paul Sabatier University, Toulouse, France. He is the author/co-author of more than 200 papers. His particular fields of interest are dielectric and mechanical properties of polymeric materials, ageing and end of life models.
