Title: Possible origin of nonlinear conductivity and large dielectric constant in the commensurate charge-density-wave phase of 1 T - TaS 2

The electric field dependence of the dielectric properties and the nonlinear conductance of 1T-TaS 2 below 50 K has been investigated. A large dielectric constant of about 10 4 is obtained up to 10 7 Hz, which cannot be attributed to hopping of the localized carriers alone, the collective excitations of the commensurate charge-density-wave must be another contributor. The dielectric spectra disperse slightly in our measured temperature and frequency range. At a moderate dc bias field, the real part of the dielectric constant ε 1(ω) decreases. Lastly, we propose that the separation of bound soliton-antisoliton pairs may be a contributor to the reduction of ε 1(ω) and the accompanying nonlinear conductivity with increasing dc bias.
