Abstract: The present paper has focus on the composite dielectric property of the cancer cell on concomitant with the capacitance relaxation phenomena. In this respect it has been found from MAT lab simulation the electrostrictive process in cancer cell is a complex one for which the electrostatic surfaces surrounding the cell changes with the incremental changes in the capacitance present in the capacitance relaxation curve. From these incremental changes in capacitance it is also possible to find out the electrostrictive energy of the cancer cell. It is interesting to note that the electrostrictive energy corresponding to the cell incremental changes in the capacitance is more in the first order system than that present in the second order system representing the equivalent configuration of the composite dielectric associated with the cell membrane. This is due the fact that during the process DNA synthesis and cell division the change in capacitance of the membrane for the first order system is relatively slow.

 

Keywords: Electrosrictive energy, Cancer cell capacitance relaxation, Composite dielectric
