Abstract

In this work we prepared conductive composites that show an electromagnetic shielding ability in the microwave range; these composites were prepared using a Modified Bisphenol A Epoxy Resin, loaded with 1% wt. of various types of carbon nanotubes (CNTs). It was found that commercial multi-wall CNTs, synthesized with the CVD method, are more effective than single-wall CNTs for the fabrication of DC conductive composites. At the same time, using the same epoxy/CNTs composites in Ka-band, the results have shown that in the range 26-37 GHz both fillers have almost the same efficiency, although single-wall CNTs show slightly better results.
