The dielectric modulus spectra of glasses in the system V2O5-TeO2 have been studied as a function of frequency in the temperature range 230 to 330K. A heterogeneous conductor model developed recently with the assumption of a sinusoidally varying local conductivity in the conducting phase has been successfully applied to analyse the data in this glass system. The Kohlrausch-Williams-Watts (KWW) stretched exponential function has also been used to fit the measured modulus spectra. The exponentβ is found to be correlated to the conductivity fluctuation in the conducting phase as assumed in the heterogeneous model.
