Radiation response and electrical properties of polymer energy storage capacitors: PVF2, Polysulfone, and MylarEfforts were made to develop a polymer film capacitor that is tolerant to radiation. The capacitors are to be utilized in a high voltage pulse discharge application. Radiation response data at high dose/dose rate levels are presented for polyvinylidene fluoride (PVF2), polysulfone, and Mylar. The results show that PVF2 is the most radiation tolerant while Mylar is the least tolerant. The data also show that the radiation response is quite dependent on operating electric stress.
