Paper Abstract

This work shows that in many practical situations it is possible to obtain the dielectric constant of coatings on plain conductive substrates by means of a single electrode-sample capacitance measurement without precise knowledge of its thickness. 3D simulations of spherical electrode-dielectric coating-conductive plain substrate capacitive system are performed in order to determine theoretically the suitable electrode dimension for a coating thickness range of interest.
