Protective, charge dissipation coatings for dielectrics are of considerable significance for satellite and electronics applications. Poly(ferrocenylsilane) has been used to coat the right half of the Mylar sample shown in the Figure. Upon exposure to a 20 eV electron beam, high-energy arc discharges resulting from negative charge accumulation occur only on the uncoated (left) half.
