Dielectric and Thermal Studies of Copper Doped Magnesium Hydrogen Maleate Hexahydrate Single Crystals
ABSTRACT
The dielectric and thermal analysis of copper doped Magnesium Hydrogen Maleate Hexahydrate single crystals are studied for the first time. The dielectric constant, loss tangent, a.c. conductivity and a.c. activation energy were measured with variation of frequency in the range 50 Hz to 1 MHz. Dielectric studies reveal that the present crystal under investigation show good optical quality. The melting point and final compound after decomposition were determined using the DTA/TG analysis.
