Effect of Carbon Addition on Dielectric Properties of 0-3 PZT-Portland Cement Composite
The dielectric properties of the 0-3 lead zirconate titanate (PZT)-portland cement (PC) composite with carbon addition were investigated. Lead zirconate titanate (PZT), Portland cement (PC) composite and carbon powder were fabricated using 50% of PZT, and varying addition of carbon 1, 2 % by volume. The dielectric properties were measured under room temperature at different frequency from 1kHz-20kHz. Carbon addition was found to slightly increase the dielectric constant of PZT-PC composite at room temperature. The results also show that both the carbon powder addition and frequency affected the dielectric constant and dielectric loss tangent of 0-3 all PZT-PC composites.
