This paper presents a novel approach that demonstrates the usefulness of electrorheological fibril formation to form 1–3 connected ceramic-polymer composites. These fillers include ferroelectric, polar, metal, semiconductor, and superconductor crystallite powders. Patterned distributions of ceramic fillers within the polymer matrix can be induced by electric fields applied between patterned electrodes.
