We propose that dynamically induced internal fields be utilized in obtaining materials with low dielectric constant at high frequencies. We also demonstrate the validity of the proposal by measuring the effective dielectric constant of polyimide dispersed with nano-sized particles. The dielectric constant of a polyimide composite measured at increases as a function of contents when the diameter of the embedded particles is approximately . On the other hand, the measured dielectric constant of a composite containing superparamagnetic particles of diameter approximately showed much smaller value than that of pure polyimide. These contrasting behaviors indicate that the induced internal fields are in operation, in reducing the dielectric constant, for a material with superparamagnetic particles.
