Research, Testing and Instruction

RESEARCH

  •  To conduct research in the area of dielectric materials at different physical states.
  • Specifically, in order to enhance the understanding of dielectric phenomena, the electronic conduction and swarm, partial discharges and breakdown are studied in high-vacuum (10-8 torr), gaseous, liquid, solid and nano-dielectrics.

High-Voltage Laboratory

High-Voltage Laboratory

The High-Voltage Laboratory was established in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering with financial support from National Science Foundation (Grant number # USE-8851806). It took about five years to complete the full construction of the laboratory.
