A physical justification for the use of Weibull statistics in the assessment of dieelctric breakdown is presented in terms of a theoretical model of structural fluctuations in non-crystalline materials which has previously been applied to relaxation dynamics in such materials. A number of breakdown mechanisms have been considered and the relationship of the Weibull parameter to experimentally measurable relaxation data is outlined. The equivalence between the statistics of dynamic and static… CONTINUE READING
