• Frequency-dependent electrical behaviour of Na$_2$SiO$_3$: a brief report

The present study reports the frequency-dependent electrical properties of sodium silicate (Na$_2$SiO$_3$) (SS) at different temperatures to understand the contribution of grain and grain boundary polarization to its electricalresponse at a lower frequency region. The low-frequency dielectric dispersion and non-Debye-type dielectric relaxation are attributed to polaron hopping that controls the complex impedance of SS. A single semi-circular arc in Nyquistplot indicates a dominance of grain boundary polarization in the relaxation mechanism. The analysis of frequency dependent ac conductivity in the studied temperature regime can be used to define the correlated barrier hoppingmodel.
