In a variety of samples, conductivity is a limiting factor regarding the resolution of dielectric loss peaks of interest. One approach to eliminating the signal that originates from conductivity is the use of insulating layers on one or both electrodes. For the typical case, it is shown that insulation layers add errors rather than improving the situation.
