We have measured the radio frequency Reσxx and Imσxx of a high mobility two-dimensional electron system (2DES) and observed a giant dielectric constant (κxx > 1 × 104) in the reentrant insulating phase (RIP) around the 1 5 fractional quantum Hall liquid. Results from temperature and excitation-level studies provide new evidence for the Wigner crystal (WC) model of the RIP, where the WC is strongly pinned by residual impurities in close proximity to the 2DES.
