The absorption of radio wave is relevant to electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding and low observability. The effect of the absorption distance much above the calculated skin depth on the absorption of radio wave (600–2000 MHz) is studied by determining the absorption loss per unit thickness for aluminum sheets of thickness ranging from 0.528 to 2.053 mm. Aluminum is dominantly used for EMI shielding. The absorption loss SEA increases with increasing thickness, such that when the… 

Radio-wave shielding behavior of steel structures

The shielding of radio wave by steel-containing structures is desirable for electronics protection but undesirable for telecommunication signal reception. This work investigates the shielding

Skin depth is a fundamental material property that governs the electromagnetic behavior of materials. Unfortunately, there are significant and common pitfalls in the analysis of the experimental



Electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding of single-walled carbon nanotube epoxy composites.

The results indicate that single-walled carbon nanotube-polymer composites can be used as effective lightweight EMI shielding materials and are found to correlate with the dc conductivity.

Nonlinear properties of thin ferroelectric film-based capacitors at elevated microwave power

A key interest in high power high frequency microwave devices is their performance at high power levels. The authors discuss two mechanisms determining the capacitance variations of a thin

Nonlinear properties of SrTiO3 films at microwave frequencies

Abstract Third order intermodulation distortion (IMD) measurements were performed on SrTiO3 thin film capacitors at frequencies of 1.7–1.9 GHz. The output power of the third order IMD product was 30
