Dataset for 'Breakdown in the case for materials with giant permittivity?'

Raw data from 2D electrostatic finite element modelling study of a single conductive inclusion contained within a ferroelectric matrix. An external field was applied and the local electric field within each element was recorded and stored in the raw data files for varying inclusion aspect ratio and angle with respect to applied field. Permittivity data has also been recorded.

Data collection method:

The dataset contains element solution data from the model discussed in the 2017 paper 'Breakdown in the case for materials with giant permittivity?', ACS Energy Letters 2 (10), 2264-2269. Details of the modelling methodology are given in the paper.

Additional information:

Data was output into .csv format. Columns are as follows: 1: Element number 2: Element area 3: Electric field in element (x) 4: Electric field in element (y) 5: Electric field vector sum 6: Material of element (1 = matrix, 11 = conductor phase) 6: Calculated relative permittivity of model Electric field data are normalised to a magnitude of 1, i.e. the field applied externally in the model. For example, a local electric field of 3 in a given element is three times that of the applied field.
