Title: Preliminary Survey on the Effectiveness of an Electromagnetic Dampener to Improve System Shielding Effectiveness.

Abstract

This report explores the potential for reducing the fields and the quality factor within a system cavity by introducing microwave absorbing materials. Although the concept of introducing absorbing (lossy) materials within a cavity to drive the interior field levels down is well known, increasing the loading into a complex weapon cavity specifically for improved electromagnetic performance has not, in general, been considered, and this will be the subject of this work. We compare full-wave simulations to experimental results, demonstrating the applicability of the proposed method.
