Barium Titanate Sintered or in Polymers?

  1. Aug 20, 2014 #1
    Hello all,

    I know Barium Titanate is a common ceramic dielectric material. However, the methods of production seems to result in a powdered form of this substance, and most of the commercially available forms seem to be limited to powders of varying sizes from nanometers to micrometers; how does this substance end up as a dielectric material for a larger capacitor? (While maintaining its uniquely high K, that is) Is it through sintering, or through suspension in a binding polymer?

    Also, if it is through sintering, does that cause a limitation in the sizes of the plates, potentially affecting its application in very large capacitors for, say, electric vehicles?
