In universal relaxation, a material's complex dielectric susceptibility follows a fractional power law f1-n where 0 < n < 1 over multiple decades of frequency. In a variety of materials, including Ba0.5Sr0.5Ti03, dielectric relaxation has been observed to follow this universal relaxation model with values of n close to 1. In this work we have shown that the universal relaxation model can be used to calculate dielectric loss even when n is very close to 1. Our calculated Q-factors agree with measured values at 1 MHz; this agreement suggests that this technique may be used for higher frequencies where network analyzer measurements and electrode parasitics complicate Q-factor determination.
