Abstract
A THIN BROADBAND NORMAL INCIDENCE VHF/UHF ABSORBER WILL BE DESIGNED. THE ABSORBER WILL BE A LAMINATE STRUCTURE USING MAGNETIC ABSORBING MATERIAL TO PROVIDE THE PRIMARY LOSS MECHANISM. THE MAGRAM WILL BE LOADED WITH OTHER MATERIALS TO CONTROL ITS IMPEDANCE AND INCREASE ITS INDEX OF REFRACTION. IMPEDANCE TRANSFORMATION LAYERS WILL BE ADDED TO CONTROL THE IMPEDANCE INTO THE ABSORBING MATERIAL. THESE IMPEDANCE LAYERS WILL IMPROVE THE EFFICIENCY OF THE ABSORBER AND GIVE IT BROADBAND CHARACTERISTICS. IN ADDITION, THIS STUDY WILL ALSO INVESTIGATE THE APPLICATION OF CIRCUIT ANALOG SHEETS TO INCREASE ABSORBER BANDWIDTH.
