The a.c. conductivity of ionic materials shows two regions of frequency-dependent conductivity over a wide range of frequencies. Jonscher’s law of dielectric response for ionic conductors enables us to characterize the conductivities. The region of low frequency dispersion approximates to a frequency-independent plateau enabling us to obtain the d.c. conductivity. In some other conductors, the presence of low-frequency dispersion cannot be neglected while determining the effective d.c. conductivity. We have used this method to extract the d.c. conductivity and hopping rate as well as to estimate concentrations of the mobile ions (carriers) in some NASICON analogues.

The pre-exponential factors obtained from the ionic conductivity studies on Na2(La, Al)ZrP3O12, Na2(La, Al)TiP3O12, NH4Zr2V3O12 and AlPO4:Li+ have been analysed. The compensation law has been found to be valid for these materials indicating that the entropy is directly related to the activation energy. The 1/α vs
