Abstract

Due to superior mechanical and electrical properties and the cost advantage associated with their processing, organic materials can be viewed as an important technology for an ample range of electronic applications. In this study, authors presented a comparison between silicon dioxide and Aloe vera gel with dielectric barrier discharge model and capacitive model in COMSOL Multiphysics. Effect of both AC and DC applied voltage on two dielectric plates with argon gas, dielectric barrier discharge current has been reported. In addition, terminal current between two aluminium electrodes separated by a dielectric material is also examined. It has been demonstrated that Aloe vera gel can be used as a dielectric material in microelectronic device.
