Abstract

Vigorous development of 5G communication technologies can boost mobile networks yet bring in electromagnetic interferences and safety concerns in utilizing electronic devices. Particularly, 5G network can not only involve a low-frequency band of n78 (3.3–3.8 GHz) but also cover multi-frequency bands of n77 (3.3–4.2 GHz) and n79 (4.4–5.0 GHz), displaying multiple electromagnetic radiations. Countless efforts have been devoted to investigating electromagnetic wave (EMW) absorbers with low- and multi-band absorption properties. However, in terms of emerging materials and designs, few reports propose the mechanisms related to those properties. This perspective briefly reviews the impressive achievements of low- and multi-frequency EMW absorbers and analyzes the design strategies that may enable low- and multi-frequency absorption. Furthermore, the cutting-edge mechanisms of corresponding electromagnetic responses, such as Snoek limit, quarter wavelength, and dielectric-magnetic synergy effects are elaborated. Thus, this perspective can shed light on the new trends and ongoing challenges for EMW absorbers and further promote their practical application.
