Description
The frequency dependence of the dielectric loss angle for a metal-insulator composite was shown previously to be an efficient method to experimentally determine the percolation threshold. The statistical properties of this angle are found here to be similar to those of the critical links (supporting the total current) near the percolation threshold close to dc and for very high frequencies. A further discussion is provided about the way to connect this angle to the critical links. The second aim of these studies is to connect the frequency dependence of this angle to the proportion of the conductor or dielectric phase in this composite.
