Paper Abstract

This study focuses on the use of silver based nanoparticle as fillers in DNA host materials to form nancomposites for applications in Electro-Magnetic Interferences (EMI) shielding. For relatively low-conductivity EMI shielding nanocomposites, silver-oxide coated cenospheres are investigated as fillers. The filler loadings are varied to determine a percolation threshold for the desired low conductivity and shielding effectiveness. Microwave absorption as well as DC surface resistivity measurements are undertaken to characterize the obtained films.
