However, as was theoretically demonstrated in this publication, the charge trapping may also occur in the structurally perfect materials, since both electrons and holes may experience self-trapping by forming polarons in the highly polarizable high-k dielectric, such as HfO2.
5a) clearly shows that dipolar polarizable units are affected by the frequency, and this leads to a relaxation process (Fig.
4-7] Hematoxylin-eosin-stained sections may not show significant numbers of polarizable crystals owing to the masking of these crystals by hematoxylin in H&E-stained sections (Figure 2, C); however, when the sections are stained with the Shidham method,[1,8,9] all the crystals polarize (Figure 2, G) with diagnostic weak positive birefringence (Figure 2, D and H).
The results of the geophysical survey identified five highly resistive and highly polarizable areas up to a depth of 150 meters, varying from approximately 600 meters by 300 meters to 1000 meters by 800 meters in size.

Special stains (periodic acid-Schiff with diastase, Congo red, and colloidal iron) and presence of polarizable material can help rule out foreign material, such as silicone and polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP).
In each case, the depth to the top of the polarizable material was interpreted to be within 100 metres of surface.
This would generate a highly polarizable charge transfer system with an asymmetric electron distribution.
In a polymer, the magnitude of the dielectric constant is, therefore, determined by the ability of the polarizable units to orient fast enough to keep up with an applied AC electric field.
Literature highlights that the hydrophobic effect of fluorine atoms and the increase of the fractional free volume, which reduces the number of polarizable groups in a volume unit, decrease the dielectric constant (12).
