Abstract

Frequency dispersion associated with dielectric relaxation phenomena in polycrystalline cubic pyrochlore with normal composition (Bi1.5Zn0.5)(Zn0.5Nb1.5)O 7 is analyzed. Measurements at cryogenic temperatures and high frequencies reveal a broad distribution of relaxation times. The associated dielectric loss data can be modeled with a function convoluting the Vogel-Fulcher law and a Gaussian distribution. This function, dependent only on measuring frequency and temperature, describes exceptionally well the phenomena observed over a frequency range covering seven decades and over 300 K.
