Calcium copper titanium oxide materials and ceramics have attracted considerable interest as an extremely high dielectric constant material,( literature values reported between 60,000 and 250,000 ). CCTO is reported to have a cubic structure ,and no known phase changes down to very low temperatures. An aditional advantage is that it is lead free. These features make this material a very attractive option as new material for applications in microelectronics such as capacitors and memory devices. Its high dielectric constant also enhances the possibility of further miniaturization of components.
The CCTO powder is available on a custom synthesis basis as a regular low micron sized powder or a nano-structured powder for research and development applications.
