Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue on "Dielectrics: Propelling Technological Progress" aims to showcase the latest research and advancements in the field of dielectric materials. We invite original research papers and reviews highlighting innovative approaches and applications in understanding, designing, and utilizing dielectric materials across various fields. The issue is especially interesting in papers exploring dielectric phenomena at the nanoscale, dielectric materials for energy storage, dielectric theory and modeling advances, and dielectrics in electronics and communication devices. By gathering diverse research in one place, we aim to stimulate interdisciplinary conversation and propel the field of dielectrics forward.

Dielectrics hold significant importance due to their diverse applicability across various technological fields. These insulating materials, characterized by their ability to support electric fields, play a crucial role in numerous applications ranging from common household items to complex scientific equipment. In electronics, dielectrics form the core of capacitors, controlling energy storage and release. Moreover, the telecommunications industry capitalizes on dielectric properties to produce components for communication devices, ensuring signal clarity and reduction in energy loss. In power systems, they are pivotal in the insulation of high-voltage equipment. Further interest in dielectrics extends to the burgeoning field of nanotechnology, where miniaturized circuits necessitate precise control over dielectric properties. This Special Issue seeks contributions that shed light on the latest advancements in dielectric materials, focusing on their various applications and the challenges and solutions in optimizing their properties for each specific use.
