Introduction and Aim & Scope

In many applications involving electromagnetic radiation, especially in the microwave frequency range, microwave-absorbing materials (MAMs) are essential. Instead of reflecting or transmitting electromagnetic waves, particularly microwaves, these materials are made to absorb and disperse them. Numerous industries, including telecommunications, the military, aerospace, the auto industry, and electronics, find uses for this trait. An overview of microwave-absorbing materials is given below, along with information on their characteristics, uses, and difficulties.

The first generation of MAMs were magnetic metals, their alloys, their oxides and materials combining these components. These MAMs have some disadvantages, including difficult process ability, high density, easy oxidation in the air, and poor thermal stability, which restrict their practical applications. Recently, new types of MAMs were found as transition metal sulphides and carbonaceous-based materials, which can tune their dielectric properties to achieve impedance matching as well as interfacial polarization, multiple reflections, and scattering. Their microwave absorption performances also depended on some other factors, such as morphology, doping, size, and defects. However, materials with only good magnetic properties or good dielectric properties could not achieve high-efficiency microwave absorbing performance. Therefore, composites of magnetic and dielectric materials could be promising MAMs with intense reflection loss (RL), wide effective absorption bandwidth (EAB), lightweightness, and thin matching thickness.

Considering these aspects, this special issue is aimed to collect quality articles in the field of Mircoabsorbing Materials. Manuscripts focussing on synthesis & applications of these materials are invited under this special issue.
