An optimized NiZn ferrite absorber for the whole P-band (230 –1000 MHz) is proposed by inserting cross-shaped metamaterial. Effective absorption bandwidth below − 10 dB for the composite absorber covers the frequency range 210 MHz–1000 MHz. Electromagnetic wave attenuation mechanisms are revealed by surface current distribution and power loss density distribution. The increased absorption bandwidth of the composite absorber is attributed to the overlap effect of three absorption peaks originated from the multilayer cross-shaped metamaterial absorbers. Results indicate that the proposed composite absorber can be utilized in the P-band with relatively less thickness compared to the traditional NiZn ferrite absorber.
