The magnetoelectric (ME) composites having the general formula, (x) Mg0.25Cu0.25Zn0.5Fe2O4 + (1-x) BaTiO3 (x=15%, 30%, 45%) were synthesized by sintering mixtures of highly ferroelectric BaTiO3 and highly magnetostrictive magnetic component Mg0.25Cu0.25Zn0.5Fe2O4. The presence of constituent phases of ferrite, ferroelectric and their composites were confirmed by X-ray diffraction (XRD) studies. Surface morphology of the samples has been investigated using Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (FESEM), which revealed uniform mixing of two phases. The variations in dielectric constant and dissipation factor as a function of frequency from 100 Hz to 1 MHz were measured in a Hioki LCR Hi-Tester. The dielectric constant and dielectric loss were found to decrease rapidly in the low frequency region and became almost constant in the high frequency region. The electrical conductivity deduced from the measured dielectric parameters has been analyzed and found that the conduction mechanism in these composites is in conformity with small polaron hopping model.
