Exploring carbon nanotubes / BaTiO3 / Fe3O4 Nanocomposites as microwave absorbers
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C
We report the modelling and characterization of microwave absorbing materials specially designed for 26–37 GHz frequency range (Ka-band). Composite materials based on carbon nanotubes/BaTiO3/Fe3O4 in a phosphate ceramic matrix were produced, and their electromagnetic response was investigated. Both theoretical and experimental results demonstrate that this material can absorb up to 100% of the power of an incident plane wave at a normal incidence angle. The physics underlying such absorption level is discussed in terms of refractive index of the material.
