Graphene oxide obtained by Hummer's method is used to synthesize reduced graphene oxide (RGO) using chemical and thermal treatment method. Flexible composites of RGO-Silicon carbide (SiC)-Low density polyethylene (LLDPE) in different wt.% ratios of fillers are characterized for complex permittivity and permeability in X-band. A metamaterial design of ring shaped with four stripe structure is designed on developed substrate as well as standard FR4 substrate and simulated using EM simulator, CST Microwave Studio. Simulated results showed shifting of resonant peak frequency from C-band frequency for FR4 substrate to X-band for developed substrates signifying a role of microwave constitutive properties of the dielectric spacer. The fabricated metamaterial structure on RGO-SiC-LLDPE composite of thickness 0.7 mm shows a S11 ∼ −25 dB at 10.7 GHz with maximum absorption of 96.7%. Thus, the developed meta-material design showing a potential application in microwave applications.
