The complex impedance spectra of polymer-derived amorphous silicon oxycarbides synthesized at different temperatures are reported. Analysis of the spectra using equivalent circuit models showed that the conduction of current is dominantly through the matrix and free carbon in series, instead of through the matrix or free carbon only. We found that the conductivity of both matrix and free-carbon phase increases with increasing synthesis temperature, whereas the relaxation time of the matrix is much shorter than that of the free carbon. The results are correlated with the structures of the materials.
