Kanat Anurakparadorn’s research focuses on the design and fabrication of polymer nanocomposites-based metamaterials as electromagnetic absorbers. For this research, the group works in cooperation with Professor Eric Michielssen from the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department. Periodic porous structures are designed by computational EM wave modeling with optimization techniques. Combined magnetic nanoparticles with conductive fillers are synthesized and dispersed in polymer matrices to achieve desired micro morphologies. Fused deposition modeling is used to fabricate the designed structures as macro morphology. Unique EM absorber characteristics such as wide operational bandwidth, polarization insensitive, incident angle independent, and high level of absorption are the targets of the design.
