The presence of various types of chemical interactions in such complex ionic solids gives them a characteristic soft fluctuating structure, Prone to a wide set of defects which span from lattice distortions to the presence of mobile ions.
The resistivity at 300 K is [P.sub.300K] [approximately equal to] 1-5 x [10.sup.5] [OMEGA] cm, which is in the range of resistivity for ionic solids. The various Ag-based materials follow ionic conduction [18-21].
