Electromagnetic absorbent materials, in particular microwave attenuating materials (MAMs), have been the subject of many studies in recent years. This fact is due to the proliferation of electronic devices working in the GHz range, both for mobile communications and for the control of devices in the field of medicine, transport or for military purposes. The origin of the attenuation should be sought both in dielectric and magnetic losses as well as in the combination of both. It is worth pointing out that, not only the strong absorption performance, but also lightweight should be considered for MAMs’ practical application.
The challenge of these investigations is to obtain maximum attenuation with materials as light in weight as possible. There are interesting studies carried out with micro- and magnetic nanomaterials embedded in dielectric matrices. In some cases, very good results are obtained by combining these materials with carbon nanotubes or graphene derivatives.
This Special Issue will focus on the latest developments, research findings, and applications of electromagnetic absorbent materials.
Both reviews and original research papers will be considered. Reviews should provide an up-to-date, well-balanced overview of the current state-of-the-art of a particular material or materials combination and include the main results from other groups.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
