With the development of modern science and technology, electromagnetic (EM) wave absorption materials, as a kind of new functional materials, are not only more and more valued in the application of military fields, but simultaneously also have an extremely widespread application prospect in the civil aspect such as stealth technology of aircrafts, microwave dark room, and electromagnetic interference suppressor [1, 2]. Microwave absorbents are the key in absorbing material research. In recent years, extensive studies have been carried out to develop new absorbents with a high electric and magnetic loss [3, 4, 5]. Planar equiangular spiral antenna arrays (PESAAs) might become a novel EM wave absorbent due to their light weight, low lost, remarkable design flexibility, and ease of preparation. However, to the best of our knowledge, there are no reported experimental results on EM wave absorption properties of antenna structures in the open literature.
In this work, PESAAs with different...
