Undoped PVA and Zinc iodide (ZnI2) inorganic salt doped PVA with different ZnI2 (1–37) wt% percentages are novel composite polymer dielectric films have been successfully prepared by the solution cast method. The developed dielectric films were characterized by analyzing the physicochemical phenomenon to study the effect of ZnI2 inorganic salt concentrations. The XRD histogram explicated the being semi-crystalline nature of PVA polymeric matrix with ZnI2 inorganic salt doping. The optical UV–Vis–NIR characteristics of the composite dielectric films were measured. The effect of ZnI2 inorganic salt loading contents increasing on opto-electrical properties such as transmittance, Absorbance, optical band gap in addition to the AC impedance spectroscopy was studied in the polymer composite dielectric film. The modifications in the optical properties of PVA film are attributed to the interaction between the salt molecules and the PVA matrix. The frequency dependent AC\DC electric conductivity at different ZnI2 content follows and obeyed the Jonscher’s universal power law. The data of AC impedance spectroscopy is to map ready the complex generalization of resistance that includes capacitive and inductive effects of the polymer composite dielectrics as a function of the angular frequency. These films with excellent optoelectronic phenomenon beside appreciable flexibilities aid their claims as multifunctional UV shielding devices with enhanced a character of semiconductors.
