Impedance spectroscopy – comparison of dielectric model with experimental results

Impedance measurements of building materials have been gaining popularity especially in the last twenty years. No electrical component has only resistance, capacitance or inductance, as there is an interplay of these parameters. This is compounded in the case of building materials, which contain a significant number of different phases that vary in chemical composition, crystalline structure and properties. It is, therefore, necessary to choose a connection and measurement system that provides the most accurate information about the building material. This information is primarily meant to include the complex impedance, its components and the quantities derived from them. The derived quantities are electrical resistance or electrical capacitance. Using these quantities we can point out the composition of the material, its conductivity and identify the percolation threshold or describe its sensory properties in more detail. For measurements, an alternating electric field is crucial, and the range of frequencies depends on the instruments used. For materials characterization, the most used frequency range is 100 Hz to 100 kHz; however, we can measure down to 1 MHz.
