Analysis of Microwave Absorbing Properties of Epoxy MWCNT Composites
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research Letters, Vol. 44, 63-69, 2014
Abstract
In the ongoing search for new materials for microwave absorption applications, Carbon Nanotubes deserve a special consideration due to their outstanding properties. In this paper, microwave absorbing properties of epoxy resin based composites containing commercial MultiWalled Carbon Nanotubes used as fillers have been analyzed. The complex permittivity of the composites was measured in a wide frequency band (3-18 GHz). The absorbing properties of a single-layer absorber backed by a metallic plate considering several concentration of CNTs was simulated taking into account the measured permittivity.
