The dielectric behaviour of composites of barium titanate (BaTiO3) and polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) has been studied by changing the weight fraction of BaTiO3. The dielectric behaviour of the composites has a significant influence of PVDF up to 50wt% BaTiO3 in the composite, but this effect is insignificant at higher weight fractions of BaTiO3. X-ray diffraction studies on composites are also reported to correlate the observed dielectric changes with the corresponding structural changes.
