Theory of insulator charging

View publication

Abstract

Data are presented which suggest that the contact electrostatic charging of insulators occurs to neutralize an electric field created in the interface during the contact event, sometimes called the high density limit of the surface state theory. Such a theory accounts for almost all available metal-insulator and insulator-insulator electrostatic contact charging experiments. © 1992.
