Temperature Dependence of Dielectric Constants

  1. Sep 17, 2008 #1
    Does anyone have information on temperature dependence of dielectric constants? I haven't been able to find anything general enough on Google. I'm particularly interested in Polyethylene, Teflon, and Air but a general description would also be appreciated.

    My favorite book on the topic is "Theory of Dielectrics" by Frohlich. He discusses temperature dependence of the Dielectric function, but I'm not sure about the specific cases you mention. At least you can get started by treating "Air" as an ideal gas.
