The Development of Capacitor Materials Technology

Maciej Jaroszewski, Jan Ziaja, Przemysław Ranachowski, Charanjeet Singh

We are in the era of energy storage devices and lot of research is going on cpacitors to bridge the gap for rebuttals found in conventional capacitors. Herein, basic properties of capacitors are mentioned. The performance parameters of barium titanate are presented which is used as dielectric material in capacitors. The manufacturing process of multi-layer ceramic capacitors is discussed. The detailed description of supercapacitor behavior is mentioned with necessary mechanisms. The review of different materials incorporated in electrodes of the supercapacitor has been presented.
