Optically Transparent Microwave Shielding Hybrid Film Composited by Metal Mesh and Graphene

Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 170, 187-197, 2021
Abstract
Transparent conducting materials with the ability of broadband electromagnetic shielding have a widespread range of applications in aerospace, medical equipment and electronic communications. Achieving enhanced electromagnetic shielding effect without sacrificing much optical transparency is the technical trend in both academia and industries. Here, we experimentally propose a flexible hybrid film constructed by nano-printing based metal meshes and a graphene coating for the transparent electromagnetic shielding application. Numerical analysis is carried out to investigate optimal balance between electromagnetic shielding and optical transparency. In the experiment, enhanced shielding ability of hybrid film is observed without excessively sacrificing optical transmittance, compared to the reference group (the case only with metal mesh). Our work provides a hybrid platform for the high-performance optically transparent shielding materials for electromagnetic environment safety protection.
