Electromagnetic Propagation and Absorbing Property of Ferrite-Polymer Nanocomposite Structure

By Harun Bayrakdar
Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 25, 269-281, 2012


We have synthesis ferrite-polymer nanocomposite structures, theoretically and experimentally investigated electromagnetic propagation, absorption properties of these nanocomposite materials at 8-20 GHz in microwave guides. The microwave properties of the samples were investigated by transmission line method, and reflection loss of -59.60 dB was found at 12 GHz for an absorber thickness of 2 mm. These nanocomposites may be attractive candidates for microwave absorption materials.
