Abstract

The dielectric and electroactive strain properties of the poly(vinylidene fluoride-trifluoroethylene-chlorotrifluoroethylene) terpolymers with two different concentrations of chlorotrifluoroethylene (CTFE) was analyzed. The properties of the terpolymers were studied down to cryogenic temperatures. It was found that the increase in the CTFE concentration shifts slightly towards the temperature where the dielectric constant maximum occurs to a lower temperature. It was also found that the dielectric relaxation process occurs for both compositions in the temperature range of 220 to 350 K.
