Tetragonal BaTiO3 bulk samples are prepared using the solid-state route in conjunction with intermediate high-temperature annealing steps. The (002) and (200) X-ray diffraction peaks near 2Ɵ~45° and 310, 520, and 720 cm−1 characteristic vibrational modes in Raman spectroscopic measurements confirm the tetragonal crystallographic structure of BaTIO3 bulk samples. The 1100°C annealed BaTiO3 sample showed optimal tetragonality ~1.016 and the same is used for BaTiO3–acrylonitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) composites at different BaTiO3 loading fractions in parts per hundred (PHR). These BaTiO3/NBR composite systems exhibit dual band microwave resonance, widening the operating window for microwave absorption applications. Eighty PHR BaTiO3/NBR composite exhibits microwave reflection losses (RL) at 9.5 and 16.5 GHz with ~−9 and ~−18 dB reflection losses, respectively. The onset of dual band is attributed to the ferroelectric-induced dipolar relaxation at 9.5 GHz and its second-order resonance at 16.5 GHz in such composite systems. © 2016 The American Ceramic Society
