Tunable and multi-band metamaterial (MTM) based perfect microwave absorber (MA) is designed, implemented, and characterized. Firstly, dual-band MA with has two distinct resonances is investigated both numerically and experimentally which is also tested according the incident angle and polarization independencies. Then, the modified versions of MA are investigated and compared with respect to their absorbance, mechanical tunability, and multi-band characters. As a result, the suggested MAs with perfect absorption (including incident angle and polarization independencies) display good performance among their counterparts and can be used in myriad potential applications such as high frequency and sensor applications which are also presented.
