With the development of modern science and technology, the influence of electromagnetic radiation on the environment is increasing day by day. At the airport, aircraft flight due to electromagnetic interference cannot take off and delayed; In hospitals, mobile phones often interfere with the normal operation of electronic diagnosis and treatment instruments. Therefore, the treatment of electromagnetic pollution, looking for a kind of material that can resist and weaken electromagnetic radiation, has become a major subject of material science.
Due to the large dielectric constant of single carbon material, it is not conducive to impedance matching, leading to its poor absorption performance. Moreover, as a nano material, the agglomeration degree between carbon materials is high, and it is difficult to disperse evenly in the matrix. Therefore, the preparation of carbon matrix composites to adjust its electromagnetic parameters, improve the impedance matching degree and improve the dispersion, in order to obtain light and efficient absorbing materials has become a current research focus.
This special issue introduces the latest research progress in the preparation and application of electromagnetic wave absorbing materials based on carbon. 
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
Design and preparation of graphene composites
Design and preparation of porous carbon composites
Design and preparation of carbon nanotube composites
The loss mechanism of Electromagnetic wave absorbing materials
Parameter testing of various electromagnetic wave absorbing materials based on biomass carbon
Application and development of electromagnetic wave absorbing materials based on biomass carbon


Electromagnetic wave absorbing materials; Loss mechanism; biomass carbon material; composite material
