In the present work, we study the dielectric behavior of various ternary mixtures composed of epoxy resin (RE), of one of three different titanates (barium titanate, BaTiO3; calcium titanate, CaTiO3; magnesium titanate, MgTiO3) respectively with one of three oxides (calcium oxide, CaO; manganese dioxide, MnO2; zinc oxide, ZnO) using time domain reflectometry (TDR). The different composites are mixed at room temperature in different volume fractions keeping the epoxy resin at a constant volume fraction. Several mixture combinations are studied to see the oxides influence on the titanates dielectric behavior in the range from DC to 10 GHz. This is done through the experimental determination of the dielectric constant εs. A noticeable effect has been recorded at the low frequency and which consists of an increase of this dielectric permittivity when growing the volume fraction of manganese dioxide. One meaningful point of this study is the lowest static conductivity value (8.017 × 10−3/(Ωm)) being reached with an incursion of 7.5% of MnO2 in a ternary mixture composed of RE, MgTiO3 and MnO2. In addition, the behavior obtained experimentally has been validated by the Lichtenecker modified model. This study interest lies on an application of these materials in microelectronics and particularly in telecommunication components manufacturing.
