Abstract: The frequency and temperature dependence of ac conductivity measurements have been made on (Ge<sub>20</sub>Se<sub>80</sub>)<sub>0.90</sub>Sn<sub>0.10</sub> glassy alloy in the frequency range 2-50 kHz and in the temperature range 273-373K. Dielectric constant (<img src='/image/spc_char/italics_e.gif' border=0>') has been calculated using this data. The results indicate that dielectric dispersion occurs in this temperature and frequency range. The dielectric loss (<img src='/image/spc_char/italics_e.gif' border=0>'') and loss angle (tan<img src='/image/spc_char/delta1.gif' border=0>) have been calculated using Gever’s relation. The temperature dependence of dielectric loss (<img src='/image/spc_char/italics_e.gif' border=0>'') shows relaxation peaks as a function of temperature. These relaxation peaks shift towards the higher temperature as the frequency is increased. A detailed analysis of the data shows that the results can be explained in terms of dipolar relaxation with a distribution of relaxation times, which is quite expected in case of chalcogenide glasses.
