dc.description.abstractThe development of high-power microwave weapons and dependence on electronics in modern weapon systems presents a high-power microwave weapons threat in future military conflicts. This study experimentally determines the absorption characteristics of simple metamaterial devices to potentially be used as protection and identification mechanisms, constructed through standard printed circuit board manufacturing processes, in the microwave region. Experimental results and analysis techniques are presented confirming absorption peaks in the anticipated microwave frequency range. The experimental results are compared to a finite-element model of these metamaterials confirming the ability to accurately model and predict absorption characteristics of similar metamaterial structures. Utilization of the absorption characteristics of these types of metamaterial structures to develop a microwave detector and/or equipment shielding is discussed. Several applications for such type of a detector are presented.en_US
