We have reported the ionic relaxation for different compositions of xAg2O-(1-x)TeO2 conducting glasses in wide temperature and frequency ranges. We have explained the composition dependence of the conductivity and the activation energy in terms of composition-dependent network structure of these glasses. We have compared the results for silver tellurite glasses with those for the alkali (Li,Na) tellurite glasses and observed that the migration of Ag+ ions in glasses, in general, appears to be anomalous. We have analyzed the frequency-dependent electrical data in the framework of the power-law conductivity formalism. We have explained the decreasing trend of the relaxation time with increasing Ag2O content in terms of structural transformation of tellurite network. Interestingly, we have observed that the concentration of mobile Ag ions is less than the concentration of total Ag ions and decreases with the increase of silver oxide content in the compositions, while the conductivity increases. We have shown that the scaling of the conductivity spectra is independent of temperature, but depends on composition.
