High performance RF/microwave dielectric electroceramics

Our initial aim in this project is to explore the origin of polarisation of microwave dielectric ceramics by means of crystal chemistry and defect chemistry, and thereby control and optimize associated dielectric properties. We have been focussed on the development of high performance RF/microwave materials with a high dielectric constant, a high quality factor a good temperature stability. Much of this work is geared to supporting the Australian industry activities and enhancing Australia's competitiveness.
