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.

EuroTechPostdoc2 Programme

Within the EuroTechPostdoc2 programme, the universities of the EuroTech Universities Alliance offer seventy Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowships to experienced high-potential researchers, in two calls for 35 fellows each. Besides giving the fellows the freedom to establish their own research lines, the programme provides exceptional training opportunities to prepare the fellows for a future as part of the new generation of scientific leaders, within and outside of academia.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement no. 899987.

Supported by Eindhoven University of Technology. Designed by Penrose CDB –
