  • Patent number: 11072095
    Abstract: A method including applying an AC voltage to a mixture of a polymer material and nanoparticles to form a polyolefin-carbon nanomaterial composite. The polyolefin-carbon nanomaterial composite includes electrically conductive pathways that are oriented within the polyolefin-carbon nanomaterial composite. The method forms an electrically conductive polymer-graphene material by a process that includes milling a polyolefin with carbon nanoparticles, then forming a composite plate by press-molding the mixture of polyolefin and graphene while inserting a needle electrode therein. Subsequent application of an AC voltage causes partial dielectric breakdown of the composite thereby forming the electrically conductive pathways.
