Space Charge Induced Luminescence in Epoxy Resin

By Virginie Griseri, Len A. Dissado, John C. Fothergill, Gilbert Teyssedre and Christian Laurent


This paper was presented at the 4th International Conference on Electric Charge in Solid Insulators (CSC4), 2-6 July 2001 and published as pp. 189-192 of the Proceedings. The final version may be available from breakdown of epoxies is preceded by a light emission from the solid state material, so-called electroluminescence. Very little is known however on the luminescence properties of epoxy. The aim of this paper is to derive information that can be used as a basis to understand the nature of the excited states and their involvement in electrical degradation processes
