Abstract

The reduction of grain size from the microcrystalline regime into the nanocrystalline regime is known to produce significant changes in the transport properties of polycrystalline ceramics. Part 1 of this series described the development of a pixel-based finite-difference "nested-cube model" (NCM), which was used to evaluate existing composite models for the electrical/dielectric properties of polycrystalline ceramics over the entire range of grain core vs. grain boundary volume fractions, from the nanocrystalline regime to the microcrystalline regime. Part 2 addresses grain shape and periodicity effects in such composite modeling, and the extraction of local materials properties (conductivity, dielectric constant) from experimental impedance/dielectric spectroscopy data.
