【摘要】：An equivalent circuit (EC) method for absorbers design is proposed in this paper. Without using full-wave analysis, the EC method can predict the performance of the absorbers. This method is employed to synthesize broadband absorbers by inserting the resistors respectively into the single- and double-square loops structures, then two different prototypes with broadband absorbing frequency bands are manufactured and measured. By comparisons with the results both by using the full-wave analysis and by the measurements, the correctness of the new EC method is verified. Some factors which affect the absorbing bandwidth are also investigated. Due to its fast and accurate characteristics, the EC method which can be theoretically applied to arbitrary FSS is a good candidate for broadband design of the absorbers.
