Thermomechanical behavior of BME capacitors during binder burnout

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Recently, multilayer ceramic capacitor (MLCC) manufacturers have focused on replacing costly noble-metal electrodes with base-metal electrodes (BME), which affects all stages of the fabrication process. Binder removal is a critical step in the process and must be controlled to avoid delamination and deleterious electrode oxidation. Thus, the deformation behavior of BME-multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) during binder burnout is characterized using thermomechanical analysis (TMA), and results are compared to thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) data.
