Design and Performance Research on Dual Layer Cement Based Absorber Reinforced with Graphene Nanosheets and Manganese-zinc Ferrite
Keywords:graphene nanosheets, microstructure, electrical resistivity, mechanical properties, reflectivity
Dual layer cement-based absorber is synthesized by mixing with graphene nanosheets and manganese-zinc ferrite, to study the effect of absorbing filler content on the mechanical properties, microstructure, electrical resistivity and reflectivity of the paste. The microstructure of the absorber is seen by Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) images, Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) curves of the absorber. The results show that graphene nanosheets significantly reduce the electrical resistivity of paste, increasing its mechanical properties by improving its pore structure. SEM images indicate that graphene nanosheets promote the increase and coarsening of cement hydration products and produce a large number of dense bulk crystals. Furthermore, reflectivity measurements show that the minimum reflectivity of – 14.1 dB is obtained in the range of 2 ~ 18 GHz and the effective bandwidth of 16 GHz is obtained when reflectivity is less than – 7 dB. This study provides a new method for the preparation of dual layer cement-based absorber.
