The Schegolev method is a well established technique to determine the dielectric properties of organic materials by placing the small samples in a microwave cavity and measuring the perturbation. The electronic properties can be studied without applying contacts and the frequency dependence gives information on the transport mechanism. The versatility of this unique method is reviewed by highlighting various applications on organic conductors and semiconductors.
