Abstract

Using quasi-steady-state and time-resolved high-field impedance techniques, the frequency-dependent dielectric permittivity of poly(vinylacetate) has been studied at electric field amplitudes as high as 400 kV/cm. The relative changes of the dielectric loss depend quadratically on the field amplitude and reach about 1 %. The magnitude and frequency-dependence of this non-linear dielectric effect and its time evolution after applying the high field are consistent with energy absorption from the field being at the source of the non-linear behavior. Based upon a phenomenological model of heterogeneous dynamics at isothermal conditions, the observed changes can be explained by locally increased configurational temperatures and the resulting accelerated dynamics.
