Abstract. We have investigated the electrical properties of carbon-nanotubes-loaded DGEBA polymer composites in the frequency range between 1Hz and 10 MHz and temperature range between 25°C and 105°C. The frequency dependence of electrical data have been analyzed in two frameworks: the electrical modulus formalism with the Kohlrausch-Williams-Watts stretched exponential function (KWW) and the electrical conductivity by using the Jonscher’s power law. The stretching exponent βKWW and the Jonscher exponent n are found to be temperature dependent for all carbon nanotubes concentrations and show a very slight variation with increasing the amount of filler percentage at room temperature.
