Fractional capacitors made easy thanks to Agamyrat

Today we celebrate our 100th journal paper. PhD student Agamyrat demonstrated a new simple yet effective realization of fractional capacitors using Poly(vinylidene fluoride)-based polymers and their blends. We can precisely tune the constant phase angle of the resulting fractional order capacitor by changing the blend composition. The structural composition of the fabricated blends is investigated by using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction techniques. We would like to thank the Saudi Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC) for funding this work under Grant No. RGC/3/2385-01. More details at: Agamyrat Agambayev, Shashikant P.Patole, Mohamed Farhat, Ahmed Elwakil, Hakan Bagci and Khaled N.Salama "Tunable Ferroelectric Fractional-Order Capacitors", ChemElectroChem, accepted 2017

This work builds on our highly cited work on realization of electrostatic, micro scale, compact fractional capacitors using reduced graphene oxide percolated polymer composites. The work was partially funded by Saudi BasicIndustries Corporation (SABIC) under Grant No. 2000000015. To learn more about this, you are invited to check our U.S. patent  9,305,706 and read the paper, Microscale Electrostatic Fractional Capacitors using Reduced Graphene Oxide Percolated Polymer Composites, that was published in the leading physics venue Applied Physics Letters.
