Enhanced flexoelectricity in perovskite ceramics and single crystals has been reported before. In this letter, 3-3 ceramic-ceramic Ba0.6Sr0.4TiO3/Ni0.8Zn0.2Fe2O4 composite with a colossal permittivity was employed in the conventional pure bending experiment in order to examine the transverse flexoelectric response. The measured flexoelectric coefficient at 30 Hz is 128 μC/m and varies to 16 μC/m with the frequency increasing from 30 Hz to 120 Hz, mainly due to the inverse correlation between the permittivity and the frequency. This result reveals the permittivity dependence of flexoelectric coefficient in the frequency dispersion materials, suggesting that the giant permittivity composites can be good flexoelectric materials.
