- PhD Thesis: In my PhD, I was working on ceramic composites material for capacitor application. My main object was to find out different contributions (phases, microstructures, grain size, grain boundary thickness etc) governing high dielectric constant (>10000) and low dielectric loss (< 4 %). I studied the effect of mixing other low loss materials with CaCu3Ti4O12 (CCTO) as well as effect of substitution.
