Definitions for "Dielectric loss"
The time rate at which electric energy is transformed into heat in a dielectric when it is subjected to a changing electric field.
The power loss in a dielectric due to heating as a wave passes through it. It can be expressed as "dielectric loss tangent" (power factor) or "loss factor". Low loss makes a good dielectric (ECCOSTOCK dielectric materials). High loss is an absorber (ECCOSORB), poor dielectric.
The power dissipated ina dielectric as the result of the friction produced by molecular motion when an alternating electric field is applied.
