Synthesis and microwave absorption properties of graphene/nickel composite materials
Graphene/nickel composite materials were successfully prepared via a one-step in situ reduction from nickel chloride, graphene oxide, and hydrazine at 80 °C for 3 h. Face-centered cubic Ni nanostructures with uniform size and high dispersion assembled on graphene sheets. Through the measurement of complex relative permittivity and permeability, their microwave absorption properties were evaluated. In comparison with pure Ni nanoparticles and graphene, the composite materials demonstrated much better characteristics of microwave absorption. The lowest reflection loss value of the composites with a thickness of 3 mm can reach −23.3 dB at 7.5 GHz. Our research reveals that graphene/Ni composites are promising microwave absorption materials with desirable absorption properties and reduced material weight.
