Microwave absorbing properties of ferrite-based nanocomposites
Paper i proceeding, 2007
A study of the microwave absorbing properties of polymer (epoxy) based nanocomposites is presented. The ferrite
nanoparticles employed as filler materials were produced by a co-precipitation method, which was designed for
production of large amounts at low cost. The absorbing properties of different kinds of ferrite nanoparticles, soft (manganese) and hard (cobalt) magnetic nanoparticles, are compared. In addition, the impact of high and low densities of the respective ferrite type has been investigated. Our analysis of the microwave absorbing properties is made over a wide frequency band including both MHz and GHz regions, which is of high interest for a number of different applications both military and civilian.
