Huseyin Hiziroglu from the ECE Department will present:  "Electrical Breakdown of Dielectric Materials"

Dielectric materials have found a wide variety of applications including isolating different electric potentials, laboratory studies of plasmas, semiconductor manufacturing and capacitors for storing electrical energy. One of the most important properties of a dielectric material is its electric breakdown strength in order to achieve the objectives of a certain application. In this seminar some of our experimental setups and observations along with our theoretical findings will be presented in relation to the breakdown of gaseous and solid dielectric materials of interest.
All faculty, staff, and students are welcome to attend, and lunch will be served to the first 100 people.
