Polymer nanocomposite and its problem Property changes associated with nanostructuration is influenced by the interface between the polymer and the nano-filler. Polymer nanocomposite (NC ) is a mixture of polymer and nano-sized filler. Effect of nano-filler addition in permittivity ( nanostructuration ) in some NC : decrease in some NC : no change in some NC : increase From where does the property difference come? filler polymer
The increase of leak current by tunneling effect has been caused. The thickness of a gate insulating film has been reduced to approximately 1 nm. Electronic Device Gr.
Crystal defects of LaAlO 3 Problems of high- gate insulating material Method for detecting crystal defects 2. Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) 1. Photoluminescence (PL) Fig. LaAlO 3 single crystal (Perovskite structure) Insulating materials have defects defects therein. The defects form a localized level in a forbidden band. The localized level causes leak current.
