The electromagnetic wave absorption properties of Ba M-type (BaF12. 2x. IrxMexO19) ferrite - epoxy resin composites were investigated. After measuring the complex permittivities of the samples, the regions of complex permeabilities in which the reflection loss (R. L. ) becomes less than -20 dB (-20 dB Regions), were calculated. Altering the conditions such as sintering temperature, particle size and the ratio of ferrite powder in the composite samples, resulted in frequency dependencies of permeabilities that agree well with the calculated -20 dB regions, and which lead to an expansion in bandwidth (frequency range (Δf) of R. L. -20 dB). The BaFe9(Ti0. 5Mn0. 5)3O19 ferrite-resin composite, which was produced by sintering at 1573K for 20 h, crushing into powder (150-300 (Jin) and mixing with epoxy resin at a ratio of 70 mass%, exhibited a wide bandwidth (Af=7. 2 GHz) from 13. 75 GHz to 20. 95 GHz. Af values of 1. 4-5. 4 GHz in the frequency range 6. 35-15. 65 GHz, were obtained by changing the composition of the BeFe12-x(Ti0. 5Mn0. 5)xO19 epoxy resin composite from x=3. 5 to 4. 5.
