Being a superior dielectric material exhibiting low loss, x = 0.4 composition of Ba1-xSrxTiO3 nanoparticles have been widely used as fillers in poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) for efficient flexible dielectric and electrical energy storage application. The mentioned composition of the material is also very attractive choice of interest to the researchers due to its ability of ferroelectric to paraelectric phase transition. Due to its paraelectric nature, Ba0.6Sr0.4TiO3 has not been used for mechanical energy harvesting application till date. Here we have used Ba0.6Sr0.4TiO3 particles as fillers in PVDF matrix for efficient mechanical energy harvesting purpose. In the present work, along with the flexible dielectric, ferroelectric and energy storage applications, the developed composite films have been explicitly used for efficient biomechanical energy harvesting, powering small elec-tronic devices and pressure sensing. The fabricated nanogenerator successfully generated a maximum output voltage and output power density of 15 V and 6.75 mu W/cm2 respectively on repeated human finger tapping. The obtained output power has been clearly explained on the basis of polar phase formation and consideration of stress concentration effect.
