Abstract
The dielectric method provides application data essential for the use of insulating and semi-insulating materials in electrical and electronic systems. At the microscopic level, measurements on polymers at radio frequencies and below can yield valuable information regarding dipole-driven modes of molecular and segmental motion, particularly when considered in conjunction with complementary data provided by other techniques.

Representative observations are presented for commercial homopolymers and blends to illustrate the utility of the dielectric method as an analytical technique for polymers. Its sensitivity ensures that dielectric spectroscopy is appropriate for the investigation of phase morphology and miscibility and for the characterization of changes induced by irradiation or the presence of additives.
