Dielectric materials A dielectric is an electrical insulating material that can be polarized by an applied electric field (notation: E unit: volt per meter – V/m) When a dielectric is placed in an electric field electric charges do not flow through the material as they do in a conductor but only slightly shift from their average equilibrium positions causing dielectric polarization In this paper the dielectric and microwave properties of carbon black/siloxane rubber-based nanocomposites have been investigated in the frequency range from 1 GHz till 12 GHz according to the content of carbon black and the frequency It has been established that the increasing frequency and filler content lead to an increase in the relative permittivity and tangent of dielectric loss angle
