Abstract

The frequency-dependent complex impedance of superionic conducting glasses (AgI)x - (Ag4P2O7)1-x (x = 0.3, 0.25, 0.20) was measured from 5 Hz to 500 kHz below room temperature. The frequency dependence of the conductivity and the electric modulus observed here cannot be expressed by a single relaxation equation, but it is well described by an equivalent circuit involving a contribution due to Jonscher's universal law σ [ω] ∼ ωn (0 < n < 1). A linear relation between the DC conductivity and the relaxation time was observed irrespective of the sample compositions. These results are explained on the basis of the generalized Langevin equation associated with a non-exponential memory function. The physical basis of this approach is discussed in terms of the distribution of transition times arising from non-periodic potentials formed by immobile anions and many-body interactions among mobile cations at very high concentration in the superionic conducting glass.
