Composites of CuFe2O4 and BaTiO3 were prepared using a conventional ceramic double sintering process. The presence of both phases was confirmed by X-ray diffraction. The variations of resistivity and thermo emf with temperature in these samples were studied. All the composites showed n-type behaviour. The variation of dielectric constant (έ′) in the frequency range 100 Hz to 1 MHz and with temperature at constant frequency were studied. The conduction phenomenon was explained on the basis of a small polaron-hopping model. Also confirmation of this phenomenon was made with the help of a.c. conductivity measurements. The static value of the magnetoelectric conversion factor, i.e. d.c. (ME)H was studied as a function of intensity of the magnetic field. The maximum value of ME coefficient was observed for 75% ferroelectric phase composite.

Polycrystalline Pb(Mn0.5W0.5)O3, a ferroelectric oxide having perovskite structure, was prepared by high temperature solid state reaction technique. Preliminary X-ray diffraction analysis confirms single phase formation with the lattice parameters 𝑎 = 7.2501 Å, 𝑏 = 8.1276 Å and 𝑐 = 12.0232 Å. Room temperature dielectric constant (𝜀' ) and loss tangent (tan 𝛿) were scanned with respect to frequency in the range 100 Hz–1 MHz. Detailed study of dielectric constant and electrical conductivity reveals a phase change around 400 K, which is quite different from those in the other materials of the same type. Further, the seebeck coefficient (𝛼) is temperature independent. The conduction is interpreted as due to small polaron hopping.
