A compact quad-band metamaterial inspired microwave absorber with wide incidence angle has been reported. The unit cell is composed of L-shaped resonators enclosing a square patch carved on a low cost metal-backed FR-4 dielectric substrate. The optimized absorber exhibits absorption peaks at 1.92GHz, 2.15GHz, 2.44GHz and 2.6GHz thereby covering L-band and S-band frequencies for EMI/EMC applications. The full width at half maxima (FWHM) bandwidth of 19.7% extending from 2.1GHz to 2.56GHz is

The standard printed circuit board (PCB) technique is utilized for fabrication and testing is accomplished by waveguide measurement method. The simulated and measured results are equitable with each other.
