Abstract / Description of output

Ionic liquids have proven highly effective as dielectrics in Electric Double Layer (EDL) devices for electrostatic doping in a range of materials. DEME-TFSI in particular is a commonly used dielectric due to its high ionic conductivity and low glass transition temperature of 182 K. Application of pressure provides a dual tuning parameter in tandem with the electric field yet progress is hampered by the lack of an accurate pressure-temperature phase diagram for DEME- TFSI. We present results on expansivity and leakage current measurements of the ionic liquid dielectric DEME-TFSI to provide a phase diagram mapping the glass transition temperature up to 0.6 GPa. This should allow the effective operation of EDL devices using DEME-TFSI under pressure.
