NiCuZn ferrite–(Ba0.7Sr0.3)TiO3 (BST) composite ceramics with the BST content of up to 50 vol % were fabricated by sintering compacted powder mixtures at 900°C. The granulation of the BST powder and addition of a Bi2O3-based oxide additive effectively assisted the densification of the composite samples. The samples thus fabricated showed required εr values whereas their μr values were considerably reduced, especially for those with lower BST contents. From the detailed examinations on the effect of the Bi2O3-based oxide additives and on the process modification to improve the reduced μr values, the addition of a Bi2O3–ZnO additive with the eutectic composition of as low as 1 wt % was enough to produce a densified 10 vol % BST composite sample with a highest μr value. It was also found that the incorporation of ferrite granules calcined at 600°C caused further improvement of μr. Thus, a densified 10BST composite sample with μr = 125 was fabricated by low-temperature sintering at 900°C.
