This study focused on the radome and proposed an absorber with a meta-dome structure for ultrawideband radar absorption using an FR-4 dielectric material on the metasurface absorber for protection. In addition to protecting the absorber, the metasurface absorber exhibited ultra-wideband frequency absorptivity from radar signals, with an absorptivity band from 4.6-12 GHz, including the C and X frequency bands of radar signals. A wide incidence angle should also be considered in addition to the

Sensitivity to incident angle from 0° to 40° in the transverse electric mode and 0° to 60° in the transverse magnetic mode were observed. The proposed concept was demonstrated using full-wave simulation and experimental measurements. Published: xx xx xxxx OPEN www.nature.com/scientificreports/
