The purpose of this paper is to present efficient models of new octagonal split ring resonant (O-SRR) periodic structures that can offer practical applications for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) engineers in the area of absorbing materials. The model of an ultra-thin, compact O-SRR absorber for operation at microwave frequencies is introduced, exhibiting very high absorptive regions. The idea is extended to multi-band performance, where two different setups are demonstrated and analyzed. The physics behind the absorption mechanism for the multi-band structures is explained through the surface mechanism.
