High Temperature Capacitors for Venus Exploration, Phase II

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

High Temperature Capacitors for Venus Exploration, Phase II
In this SBIR program, TRS Technologies has developed several new dielectrics for high temperature applications including signal conditioning, filtering and energy storage, and high-power RF. Feasibility was demonstrated by constructing prototype multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) with capacitance values in the 80 to 100nF range @ 450oC and voltage handling capability of at least 250V. In particular, high dielectric constant (5,000 to 30,000), moderate loss (2-6%) capacitors were demonstrated with voltage handling capabilities of over 250V; and low dielectric constant (30-100), low loss (<<1%) capacitors were demonstrated with voltage handling capabilities of over 1000V that were capable of working from <30K to over 500oC while maintaining ca. ±14% of the room temperature capacitance.
