ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES OF NONLINEAR ELECTROLYTIC DEVICE DESIGNED USING ACETIC ACID
Keywords:Non‐linearity, Acetic acid, Hysteresis, Chaotic circuit, Electrophoretic effect, Relaxation effect
Until recently, electrical and electronics applications have been focusing on Linear Circuit Elements. However, recent works of scientists have
brought the property of nonlinearity to the forefront, proving that it can hold promising applications especially in the field of Chaotic Circuits.
Engineering application of nonlinearity is only in inception stage and its time to recognize the material properties with a new perspective.
This brief communication reports an experimental study on Electrical properties of NonLinear Electrolytic Device (NLED) made from Acetic acid
which is a weak electrolyte. The above mentioned device exhibits nonlinearity combined with hysteresis in small signal region of Voltage‐Current
characteristic The NLED manifests variable reactance under condition of high concentration and very low frequency at room temperature. An
electrical circuit is plugged using a variable DC power supply, voltmeter and ammeter and the NLED under test. Voltage is varied in steps and
corresponding current is recorded. The V‐I relation is estimated using Curve fit Toolbox of MATLAB6p5.
