In this work, free-standing and flexible polymer-ceramic nanocomposite films were fabricated by a spin-coating process using poly(vinylidene fluoride-co-hexafluoropropylene) [P(VDF-HFP)] as matrix and BaTiO3 (BTO) nanoparticles as filler. The relationships between the properties and compositions were systematically investigated. It is experimentally found that the crystallinity and the size of crystals of the P(VDF-HFP) matrix decreases with increasing BTO content. The dielectric responses of the polymer used as matrix were determined by four dielectric processes. Both the temperature and frequency dependences of the dielectric responses obtained in the composite films are mainly determined by the polymer matrix, and the influences of the ceramic filler on the four dielectric processes of the polymer matrix were discussed.
