More than that, two major polarization mechanisms in polymeric materials are studied by dielectric spectroscopy, namely polarization due to charges migration which gives rise to conductivity and polarization created by orientation of permanent dipoles. The origin of conductivity in polymer networks is due especially to intrinsic migrating charges which can follow a more complex pattern.
