Abstract:A novel structure employing the woven continuous-carbon fiber (CCF) epoxy composite with high electromagnetic (EM) shielding is presented experimentally and theoretically. The influences of weave type, number, and angle of overlapped plates upon the shielding effectiveness (SE) of the woven CCFepoxy composite are investigated. The minimum SE of the single, double, and triple-plain or balanced-twill woven CCF-composite plates was measured to be as high as 50 dB, 60 dB, and 70 dB, respectively. More than 100 dB in SE was obtained for the triple-overlapped, plain-weave CCF composite at a frequency of 0.9 GHz. The weight percentage of the single CCF-composite plate required for electronic application is 4.8% only, which is less than one quarter of the CF content, and the performance in SE is 10 dB higher in comparison with long, CF-filled, liquid-crystal polymer (LCP) composites. The SE calculated theoretically is consistent with that measured by the experiment.
