In this paper, we propose and demonstrate the possibility of using Bacterial Cellulose (BC), a bio-derived polymer, for the realization of fractional order electronic devices. BC, unlike plant-derived cellulose, is produced by some genera of bacteria, if a suitable culture is maintained. Compared to plant-derived cellulose, BC can be obtained with a green and low-energy production process, which does not produce pollutants nor carbon composites. BC is used as the bulk in a capacitor-like structure. The device impedance has been investigated and experimental evidence of its fractional nature is given.

Abstract

In this paper, we propose and demonstrate the possibility of using Bacterial Cellulose (BC), a bio-derived polymer, for the realization of fractional order electronic devices. BC, unlike plant-derived cellulose, is produced by some genera of bacteria, if a suitable culture is maintained. Compared to plant-derived cellulose, BC can be obtained with a green and low-energy production process, which does not produce pollutants nor carbon composites. BC is used as the bulk in a capacitor-like structure. The device impedance has been investigated and experimental evidence of its fractional nature is given. A model is proposed and a possible explanation of the involved phenomena is provided.
