In this experiment, the paper capacitor was placed between two sheets of insulating wax paper and a metal spacer was placed onto the assembly.
Because the changing capacitance can be monitored, the paper capacitor can serve as a chemical sensor.
Nonetheless, the results of Figure 5 clearly indicate that the paper capacitor can serve as a chemical sensor.
The company would concentrate its film and paper capacitor production in Finland and Asia and would close down the Kalmar plant in Sweden.
Most of the current production capacity of the plant, including paper capacitor production, would be moved to the Suomussalmi plant in Finland, offering some 80 new jobs.
