    You have made 117 posts in this forum. I am sure that you have noticed by now that we always ask for context. Don't just give us two words without the full sentence they appeared in and, preferably, the entire context.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: inferred zero

    You are right, I apologize:

    An inferred zero dipole moment was obtained from dielectric constant measurements.

    To "infer" something is to make a conclusion based on some evidence. In this case measurements were made and the results suggested to the observers that the dipole moment was zero.
