Polarization-enhanced three-dimensional Co3O4/MoO2/C flowers as efficient microwave absorbers

Author affiliations

Abstract

Three-dimensional (3D) hierarchical structures have been widely employed to enhance the microwave absorption performance due to their large surface area, satisfied impedance matching and polymorphic morphology. However, to achieve multiphase and multifunctional performance only within a primary unit remains a tremendous challenge. Herein, special carbon-based C/MoO2/Co3O4 nanosheets were assembled into a flower-like hierarchical architecture by a facile coordination-polymerization method. Abundant Co3O4 magnetic nanoparticles were anchored onto carbon nanoflake substrates, leading to both enhanced polarization and enhanced magnetic coupling. Meanwhile, a large number of heterogeneous junction interfaces among MoO2 nanoparticles and carbon substrates enhanced the interface polarization. Therefore, the C/MoO2/Co3O4 microflower achieved a minimum reflection loss of −59.7 dB at 17.7 GHz with a thickness of only 1.2 mm, indicative of its great potential as a lightweight microwave absorption material.
