Rao, Srinivasa Y and Satyam, M (1997) Dielectrophoretic model of conductance increase in PVC-graphite thick film during electrical breakdown. In: International Journal of Microcircuits and Electronic Packaging, 20 (1). pp. 57-60.Full text not available from this repository. (Request a copy)
The decrease in resistivity of the polymer (PVC)-graphite thick film resistors with the application of high voltage (or high current) is attributed to dielectrophoretic motion of the graphite particles in PVC medium. A simple analysis of this phenomenon indicates that the cube of the conductance varies linearly with time.
