Abstract

The shielding efficiency of various intrinsically conducting polymers (ICPs) as a function of their intrinsic properties (conductivity and dielectric constant), thickness, and temperature is determined. Two types of shielding, reflection and absorption, by ICPs are discussed. The high shielding efficiencies of highly conducting doped polyaniline, polypyrrole, and polyacetylene are reported and compared to that of copper. The easy tuning of intrinsic properties by chemical processing suggests the wide applications of ICPs, especially polyaniline for shielding.
