The frequency and temperature dependence of ac conductivity, dielectric constant and dielectric loss of ZnIn 2 Se 4 in a pellet form were investigated in the frequency range of 10 2 -10 6 Hz and temperature range of 293-356 K. The behavior of ac conductivity was interpreted by the correlated barrier hopping (CBH) model. Temperature dependence of ac conductivity indicates that ac conduction is a thermally activated process. The density of localized states N(E F ) and ac activation energy were estimated for various frequencies. Dielectric constant and dielectric loss showed a decrease with increasing frequency and an increase with increasing in temperature. The frequency dependence of real and imaginary parts of the complex impedance was investigated. The relaxation time decreases with the increase in temperature. The impedance spectrum exhibits the appearance of the single semicircular arc. The radius of semicircular arcs decreases with increasing temperature which suggests a mechanism of temperature-dependent on relaxation. © 2013 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
