  • The ceramic nanocomposite capacitor goals are: (1) more than double energy density of ceramic capacitors (cutting size and weight by more than half); (2) potential cost reductino (factor of >4) due to decreased sintering temperature (allowing the use of lower cost electrode materials such as 70/30 Ag/Pd); and (3) lower sintering temperature will allow co-firing with other electrical components.

  • At present, hydraulic-based actuators have been used to operate various valves of the aircraft engines. However, in order to increase the engine thrust-to-weight ratio and eliminate the hydraulic tubing and connections susceptible to leaks, the future aircraft systems will depend on electric controls. The major components of the electric control system need to be upgraded to at least 200 C. Advanced systems may require even 300 C operation. Among several types of components such as power transistors, diodes, conductors, resistors, and capacitors; the development of high temperature capacitors presents the most challenging problem. The challenge for technology is to producemore » capacitors providing simultaneous high capacitance (tens of micro farads), high voltage (28--400 volts), compact size, and high temperature capability. Advances in ceramic processing and thin film technology continually are being applied to existing applications and to the development of new applications in electronics and optical devices.« less
  • A monolithic ceramic capacitor capable of peak discharge currents of over 2100 A has been developed. The miniature capacitor will replace other high-voltage energy storage capacitors, usually mylar or reconstituted mica. Because production problems were minor and next assembly failures were virtually nonexistent, the monolithic ceramic capacitor is an excellent alternative to traditional capacitors especially where size is of major concern.
