This project is aimed at testing the hypothesis that using aligned nanowires in a
polymer matrix could lead to higher energy in dielectric capacitors. In details, the
specific objectives are to: A) Originate fabricating techniques for oriented
nanowires polymer matrix composites toward intensifying their capability, and B)
Determine dielectric properties of the composites, guiding the modification of
models to improve their predictability if necessary. The research will combine
both fabrication and testing approaches to test the hypothesis of using aligned
inclusions would lead to higher energy densities.
