This paper presents the design, fabrication, characterization and experimental verification of a perfect Multi-Band Metamaterial (MTM) absorber (MA) based on a simple configuration of a rectangular resonator and strips operating in microwave frequency regime. The proposed multi-band MA provides perfect absorption with TE-incident angle independency. Maximum absorption rate is achieved as 99.43% at 5.19 GHz for simulation and 98.67% at 5.19 GHz for experiment, respectively. The measurement results of the fabricated prototype are in a good agreement with the numerical results. Furthermore, we introduce a numerical analysis in order to show physical interpretation of the MA mechanism in detail. Additionally, a sensor application of the proposed multi-band MA is presented to demonstrate an extra feature of the suggested structure. As a result, the proposed multi-band MA enables myriad potential application areas such as radar, stealth, shielding, communication, imaging and medical applications.
