A further example of multi-band absorption using ultra-thin, polarization-insensitive, wide-angled metamaterial absorbers that operate in multi-frequency bands within the microwave regime is presented in this work. The basic structure geometry is utilised to create multi-band highly absorbing structures by incorporating the scalability property of the metamaterials. Simulation results verify the structure's ability for high absorption. The multi-band absorbers are promising candidates as absorbing elements in scientific and technical applications because of its multi-band absorption, polarization insensitivity, and wide-angle response. Finally, the current distributions for those structures are presented to gain a better insight into the physics behind the multiple absorption mechanism.
