Project title: The Next Epoch of Capacitor Research
Host Institution: Technical University of Denmark (DTU)
Host Supervisor: Prof. Hugh Simons
Co-host Institution: Technion – Israel Institute of Technology
Co-host Supervisor: Prof. Yachin Ivry
Summary project: Capacitors are a critical component in all electronics, and increased reliance on electric power in the green economy, increases our exposure to the electrical loss in capacitors, and capacitor failure. While the internal structure of capacitors can be captured with X-ray techniques, current technology cannot capture the function properties most critical for device operation, i.e. the electric field. In this project I seek to expand upon known x-ray based techniques to also image the electronic displacement field inside ceramic capacitors.
