Abstract

The use of advanced composite material (ACM) is drawing considerable attention in recent years as an alternative to metals. In many applications, these materials must have the ability to shield electromagnetic fields. Shielding effectiveness (SE) is the common parameter used to assess the shielding properties of these ACMs. In the paper, we introduce a nested reverberation chamber method (two reverberation chambers) to determine the shielding effectiveness of ACMs. We compare the SE of different types of ACMs, discuss edge treatment of composites, and compare other technologies.
