Abstract:

High-energy-density capacitors that are compact and light-weight are extremely valuable in a number of critical DoD systems that include portable field equipment, pulsed lasers, detection equipment, and electromagnetic weaponry. Commercial applications in need of high-power sources are also numerous. We can cite high intensity flash lamps, defibrillators, lasers, and portable field generators. Applications that require high voltage, short pulse length and high rep rates are limited to low loss dielectrics such as polypropylene. Lower rep rate applications can be served with higher loss dielectrics that include polyester PET, polyphenylene sulfide PPS, polyethylene naphthalene PEN and polyvinylidene difluoride PVDF.
