The aim of the project is to provide materials based on functionalized carbon nanostructures as components of the products with possibly the best properties in terms of absorption and/or scattering of electromagnetic radiation. Those properties will be designed for the future applications in masking of objects, particularly in the microwave absorbers. Preliminary studies indicate that carbon nanostructures enhance electromagnetic shielding in a wide range of frequencies. The Concept Phase of the project is devoted to analysis of the market towards demand for the proposed solutions whereas in the R&D Phase, a variety of textile/non-textile hybrid/composite materials will be studied in the light of critical mechanical and electromagnetic properties.
