The relaxation properties of dielectric materials are described, in the frequency domain, according to one of the several models proposed over the years: Kohlrausch-Williams-Watts, Cole-Cole, Cole-Davidson, Havriliak-Negami (with its modified version) and Excess wing model are among the most famous.

Abstract

The relaxation properties of dielectric materials are described, in the frequency domain, according to one of the several models proposed over the years: Kohlrausch-Williams-Watts, Cole-Cole, Cole-Davidson, Havriliak-Negami (with its modified version) and Excess wing model are among the most famous. Their description in the time domain involves some mathematical functions whose knowledge is of fundamental importance for a full understanding of the models. In this work, we survey the main dielectric models and we illustrate the corresponding time-domain functions. In particular, we stress the attention on the completely monotone character of the relaxation and response functions. We also provide a characterization of the models in terms of differential operators of fractional order.
