In order to detect local motion of mobile silver cations in organic-inorganic mixed glasses composed of AgI and alkylammonium iodides, their electrical conductivity at radio and microwave frequencies was measured in different compositions. Although their DC conductivity shows a clear transition from insulator to superionic conductor at AgI volume fraction φ ∼0.35, the high frequency value is continuous at the threshold. Details of frequency dependence were measured at room temperatures from DC to 10 GHz. Only a small dependence was seen in the high conducting glasses, however, the sample near the percolation threshold showed power-law dependence σ[ω] ∼ ωn at low frequency whose slope n ∼ 0.6 and approaches to unity at high frequencies.
