dielectric material

[‚dī·ə′lək·trik mə‚tir·ē·əl]
(materials)
Also known as dielectric.
A material which is an electrical insulator or in which an electric field can be sustained with a minimum dissipation of power.
In a more general sense, any material other than a condensed state of a metal.

Silicon dioxide is currently used as a gate dielectric material in the semiconductor industry, and it is considered necessary to measure oxide film thicknesses between 1.0 nm and 2.5 nm with a relative uncertainty (3[sigma]) of [+ or -]4 %.
Also, the analysis starts with free space, then progresses to dielectric material, lossy dielectric material and, finally, frequency-dependent material.
An elastic dielectric material will return to its original shape between thermal excursions, and one can imagine that a developing interconnection crack could close between thermal excursions.

Dielectric resonator filters are constructed of resonators comprising cylindrical rods or tubes of dielectric material usually mounted on a dielectric substrate in the proximity of supporting microstrip circuitry.
Once the crack has initiated, damage accumulation begins to accelerate in response to the dielectric material losing elasticity and being plastically deformed.
