Paper Abstract

The complex microstructure of dielectric films alters the local electric fields affecting both the strength by which different sites within a film interact, and the spatial extent. Using our self- consistent lattice element model, we determined the site by site interaction of the local electric fields within a defect ridden dielectric film to determine the effects of microstructure on the interaction of defects sites on its surroundings. Local dielectric properties are compared to currently accepted models of dielectric film properties (such as effective medium methods) determine the local field and polarization.
