Radar absorbing structures (RAS) based on frequency selective surface (FSS) can be prepared to meet tailored properties in reducing electromagnetic interference in the microwave range, in addition to presenting mechanical properties suitable for structural applications. This article presents a study involving RAS processed by appropriate lamination and molding of glass fiber/epoxy resin prepreg and nonwoven of carbon fiber recovered with nickel and containing patterned unit cells to evaluate their electromagnetic behavior in X-band. The electromagnetic characterization shows good microwave attenuation results obtained by the RAS FSS with circular unit cells (maximum energy absorption of 89.8% at 12.2 GHz) and also with square unit cells (absorption of 82.8% at 12.3 GHz).

Abstract In this paper, a detailed investigation of the electromagnetic (EM) properties of carbon fibre-reinforced polymer composites (CFRP) is presented. The electric permittivity, electrical conductivity, signal penetration and microwave absorption are discussed. Unidirectional composite laminate samples were characterised over X band (8–12 GHz) using the microwave transmission line technique. It is shown that the real part of the permittivity of the composites is not significantly anisotropic...

Abstract In this study, an equivalent circuit model and ray tracking method were used to predict the electromagnetic characteristics of curved radar-absorbing structures (RASs) applied with a frequency selective surface (FSS). After performing an electromagnetic analysis of FSS using a unit cell model, an equivalent circuit model reflecting the characteristics of the FSS was constructed. The equivalent circuit model of the FSS was applied to an equivalent circuit model for the RAS to evaluate th...

Abstract The surface roughness, weight of phosphating film and wettability of magnesium alloy substrates after abrasion and phosphating treatment were investigated in this work. The interfacial bonding and corrosion properties of a magnesium-based fibre metal laminate (MgFML) were analysed. The results showed that the wettability of the magnesium alloy was greatly influenced by the surface roughness, and the rough surface possessed a larger surface energy and better wettability. The surface ener...

Abstract To simultaneously resolve an undesirable electromagnetic wave and heat emissions that were caused by an electronic device, an electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding material with excellent electrical insulation and high thermal conductivity was urgently required. However, keeping the EMI shielding material on electrical insulation still remained a challenge due to the superior electrical conductive network in it. We fabricated an ordered multilayer film through casting layer (grap...

Abstract A broadband radar absorbing structure (RAS) covering both X and Ku bands (8.2–18.0 GHz) was designed by integrating an inductive frequency-selective carbon fiber fabric composite (FSFC) and multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWCNT)-loaded glass fabrics which can modulate EMI characteristics of the FSFC. All the layers of the structure consisted of fiber-reinforced fabrics, and thus general composite fabrication processes can be easily applied. An existing scaling law based on the percolation ...

Abstract The application of dielectric lossy absorbent, multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) filled polymer as a microwave absorbing material (MAM) is limited because of the high loading level. Optimizing the distribution of MWCNTs in a polymeric matrix was a key factor in obtaining better microwave absorption while keeping the MWCNT content low. According to the theory of transmission lines, we designed an alternating multilayer structure with MWCNTs distributed in the continuous and parallel...

Nanodielectrics based on metal oxide nanoparticles (NPs) exhibit significant improvement in dielectric performances. This study was carried out to examine the dielectric properties of Poly vinyl chloride (PVC) with the introduction of zinc oxide (ZnO) NPs synthesized by simple sol gel method. The microstructure and surface morphology of the synthesized ZnO NPs were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and field emission scanning microscopy (FE-SEM). The formation of the wurtzite-type ZnO was...

Dielectric polymer composites with high breakdown strength and discharged energy density have potential applications in modern electric power systems. In this study, composites comprising MWCNTs-TiO2 core-shell nanoparticles and poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) were fabricated by a solution casting method, followed by a melting and quenching process. The obtained composites are γ-phase PVDF dominated and present a dense structure. By the incorporation of MWCNTs-TiO2 core-shell nanoparticles, the...

In this paper, novel symmetrical split ring resonator (SSRR) is proposed as a suitable component for performance enhancement of microwave sensors. SSRR has been employed for enhancing the insertion loss of the microwave sensors. Using the same device area, we can achieve a high Q-factor of 141.54 from the periphery enhancement using Quasi-linear coupling SSRR, whereas loose coupling SSRR can achieve a Q-factor of 33.98 only. Using Quasi-linear coupling SSRR, the Q-factor is enhanced 4.16 times t...

Abstract Biomass porous carbon (PC) has become a novel microwave absorbing material because of its ultralow density, high dielectric loss capability and friendly to environment. In this study, we prepare Ag/PC composite materials by a simple hydrothermal method from 120℃ to 160℃. By changing the reaction temperature, the electromagnetic parameters are adjusted and the absorption performance is optimized. XRD results prove the successful preparation of Ag/PC composite materials at various tempera...
