Morgan Electro Ceramics (Bedford, OH) introduces a high voltage discharge ceramic capacitor with a high break-down strength up to 10 kVmm-1 and an inherently low dielectric loss. This combination of properties makes the capacitor ideal for circuits with high peak current and repetition rates, such as power-pulse applications for gas lasers used in the cosmetic industry. The ceramic discharge capacitor uses a strontium-titanate-based dielectric material. It has energy density storage of up to 6JKg-1. The high energy density of the capacitor is maximized over the rated working voltage (20 – 60 kV) and temperature range (–10°C to +85oC) by the low capacitance/voltage and capacitance/temperature coefficients.
