An Introduction to Permittivity


Permittivity is a significant quantity often used to quantify the behavior of a system under a given electric field distribution in space. The dielectric polarization and associated losses are two main effects connected through the complex permittivity via its real and imaginary parts. Therefore, the quantitative measure of permittivity is essential for predicting the response of a system, e.g., charge storage characteristics of capacitor, supercapacitor, flux through a charge carrying closed surface, exciton binding energy in soar cells/LEDs, properties of liquid crystals and LCDs, relaxation of dielectrics, microwave absorption effectiveness of shielding materials, the response of antenna systems, governing phase velocity of electromagnetic radiation through given medium, designing of metamaterials, etc.

An Introduction to Permittivity

Permittivity has particular relevance in energy storage, energy harvesting, energy conversion, energy transmission, energy dissipation, and even stealth technology; therefore, its thorough understanding is required, especially in practical applications. This edited book is the first to provide a single-source solution to address the fundamentals and applications of permittivity through a comprehensive literature account.

Shipping Policy

WE SHIP WORLDWIDE: We primarily ship via FedEx, UPS, DHL, EMS, TNT, and USPS because they are fast, reliable, and easily trackable. We usually ship within two to three business days after the full payment. Standard delivery generally occurs within 5 to 7 business days after the shipping date. However, sometimes delivery may take about 7 to 10 business days, depending on the shipping destination, logistics mode, weather conditions, product weight, size, or shipping company distribution structures based on re-planning, such as staff shortages caused by COVID.

SHIPPING COSTS: For some industrial products, e.g., heavy wheels, CNC machines, etc., the shipping cost is calculated based on the product weight, not quantity. To benefit from lower shipping costs for orders with multiple items, don't hesitate to contact us at Our shipping rates are listed very clearly on each product page under the SHIPPING tab. Additionally, to see the shipping cost for your country, add the item to the Shopping Cart; you will see the shipping cost based on your Country and Location.

CUSTOMS and TARIFFS: While not all products require a tariff, some products may require a minimal tariff if applicable in your country for orders of $800.00 and above. The total amount for your order does not include a customs fee/tariff. A tariff belongs to the buyer when applicable. Why don't we add tariffs to the product's retail price? - If all countries deducted the same tariff amount, we would have added the tariff amount to the product price. However, we do not do that because each country charges a different amount, while some do not even charge. Therefore we can't add any tariff to the product's retail pricing. Oz Robotics, Manufacturing Partner, or Supplier are not responsible for tariffs. Please check the "Made In" and "Made By" labels on the product page to see the product's origin. The total amount for your order does not include any duties, import taxes, customs fees, and GST/VAT. The buyer must pay all import duties. Please click here to see more on Tariffs.
