Abstract

The advances in metamaterial science and technology have raised the expectations of camouflage or stealth researchers to one order higher in terms of absorption characteristics. As metamaterial inspired radar absorbing structures are proving themselves as a good candidate with near unity absorption, feasibility towards hardware realization is necessary. Hence an extensive literature survey of metamaterial inspired radar absorbing structure has been carried out and reported in this paper along with the challenges and material issues. The various types of metamaterial structures that can be used as absorber have been provided along with simulation figures. To make the review more useful, graphene and carbon nanotube (CNT) based radar absorbing structures are also included along with their simulation and fabrication techniques.

Keywords

Metamaterial, radar absorbers, graphene, CNT, fishnet structures.
