Enhancement of Dielectric and Optical Properties of (PVA-PAA-PEG) Blend-Yttrium Oxide Nanoparticle for Biomedical Applications
In this paper, effect of yttrium oxide nanoparticles on dielectric and optical properties has been studied for biomedical applications. The optical properties have been measured in wavelength range (220–800) nm. The results show that enhancement in optical properties of polymers blend. The absorbance and optical constants of (PVA-PAA-PEG) blend increases with increase of the yttrium oxide nanoparticles concentrations. The energy band gap decreases with increasing yttrium oxide nanoparticles concentrations. The dielectric properties studied in frequency range 100 Hz–5 MHz. The experimental results show the dielectric parameters (dielectric constant, dielectric loss and A.C electrical conductivity) increase as the concentrations of yttrium oxide nanoparticles increases. The dielectric constant and dielectric loss decrease with increase of the frequency. In addition, A.C electrical conductivity increases with increase of the frequency. The nanocomposite have sensing for humidity and antibacterial activity for Escherichia coli.
