Abstract. The results of investigations of dielectric characteristics of GaSe nanocrystals and their hydrogen intercalates are presented. By using the impedance spectroscopy method, it is established that the dielectric spectra of GaSe and H x GaSe (х = 0.07 and 0.14) nanocrystals correspond to the exponent law of dielectric response. It is found that there is an increase of the dielectric constant ε ∞ for the intercalated samples in comparison with that of the initial sample. We have obtained the frequency dependences of the real and imaginary parts of the conductivity, whose dispersion is due to the presence of two-dimensional defects. Equivalent electrical circuits which determine electrical characteristics of the crystals under study are proposed.

Keywords: gallium selenide, nanocrystal, intercalation, impedance spectroscopy, dielec- tric characteristics.
