Extensive utilization of electronic devices and wireless equipment require human to take affirmative measures to weaken unwanted electromagnetic wave radiations. Herein, a ferroelectric poly[(vinylidenefluoride‐co‐trifluoroethylene) (P(VDF‐TrFE)‐MXene]‐poly(3,4‐ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) multilayered film is developed that can increase electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding performance through electrical polarization. The MXene is encapsulated by a P(VDF‐TrFE) matrix, which inhibits oxidation, and a highly conductive MXene is created conductive network resulting in enhancement EMI shielding effectiveness (EMI SE). Furthermore, the surface pattern inducing multiple scattering and PEDOT layer contributes to the increasing absorption due to the electrically conductive PEDOT. Thanks to the electrically polarized and negatively charged P(VDF‐TrFE)‐MXene, the composite film demonstrates superior EMI SE and absolute EMI SE (SSEt) are exhibited remarkable ≈61 dB and 15230 dB cm2g−1 with high absorptivity (0.87) at thickness of 120 µm in X‐band. Additionally, P(VDF‐TrFE)‐MXene composite film is applicable to motion and thermo‐resistive sensor due to the negatively charged P(VDF‐TrFE) and thermo‐resistive property of PEDOT, respectively, for multifunctionality. This work provides a feasible avenue for flexible absorption dominant EMI shielding materials via electrical polarization with remarkable EMI shielding performance.
