Paper Abstract

The AC and DC conductivities of pyroelectric composite, deuterated triglycine sulfate (DTGS): polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) having 15%, 20%, and 40% DTGS content (by weight) have been measured at temperature ranging from room temperature to 55 °C. The ac conductivity of composites at 1 MHz shows very weak temperature dependence. The dc conductivity for 20% and 40% DTGS content (by weight) composites shows activated behavior.
