Addresses the importance of EM wave absorbers and details pertinent theory, design, and applications

Demands for various EM-wave absorbers are rapidly increasing along with recent trends toward complicated electromagnetic environments and development of higher-frequency communication equipment, including AI technology. This book provides a broad perspective on electromagnetic wave absorbers, as well as discussion of specific types of absorbers, their advantages and disadvantages, their applications, and performance verification.

Electromagnetic Wave Absorbers: Detailed Theories and Applications presents the theory behind wave absorbers and their practical usage in design of EM-wave absorber necessary particularly for EMC environments, and similar applications. The first half of the book contains the foundations of electromagnetic wave engineering, specifically the transmission line theories necessary for EM-wave absorber analysis, the basic knowledge of reflection, transmission, and absorption of electromagnetic waves, derivation of Maxwell's equations and computer analysis. The second half describes special mediums, absorber application examples, simplified methods of absorber design, autonomously controllable EM-wave absorber, and more. This valuable text:

  • Provides detailed explanations of basic theory and applied theory for understanding EM-wave absorbers
  • Discusses the material constant measurement methods of EM-wave absorption characteristics that are necessary for designing EM-wave absorbers
  • Includes examples of novel EM-wave absorber configurations

Electromagnetic Wave Absorbers: Detailed Theories and Applications is an ideal read for researchers and students concerned with electromagnetic wave engineering. It will also appeal to computer software engineers and electromagnetic field theory researchers.
