Dielectric Behaviour of Ice Microcrystals Dispersed within Suspensions: A DTC Study

  • P. Pissis , L. Apekis , C. Christodoulides and G. Boudouris


The dielectric properties of water-in-oil (W/O) suspensions have been studied by means of the depolarization thermocurrent (DTC) method in the temperature range of 85-250 K. Two predominant peaks have been observed at about 140 and 225 K. Evidence has been obtained that the peak at 140 K and the dielectric absorption observed by many investigators at sub-zero temperatures in the kHz frequency range are due to the same relaxation mechanism.
