Abstract

This study presents design, fabrication, and measurement of a metamaterial absorber (MA) based on discontinuous cross-wire-strip (CWS) resonators. This suggested that MA has a simple geometry configuration and introduces perfect absorption approximately 99.79% at 3.42 GHz for simulation and 99.72% at 3.44 GHz for experiment. In addition, the designed model can be used to realize the broadband absorber for desired frequency ranges. Besides, numerical simulations validate that the MA could achieve very high absorptions at wide angles of incidence for both transverse electric and transverse magnetic waves. The experimental results are in good agreement with the numerical simulations. Moreover, this study presents a numerical analysis in order to explain physical interpretation of MA mechanisms in detail. The proposed model and its variations enable myriad potential applications such as stealth and radar technologies.
