A weak form of induced or nonpermanent magnetism for which the
magnetic susceptibility is negative. A type of magnetism
associated with paired electrons, that causes a substance to be
repelled from the inducing magnetic field.
Any material that is electrically insulating.
Dielectric (breakdown) strength
The magnitude of an electric field necessary to cause significant
current passage through a dielectric material.
Dielectric constant (ε)
The ratio of the permittivity of a medium to that of a vacuum.
Also called the relative dielectric constant or relative

A thermochemical process whereby controlled dopants are introduced
into a substrate.
