In this study, we have developed an efficient metamaterial (MTM)-based portable fuel oil sensor in order to distinguish branded and unbranded fuel-oil samples. Electromagnetic properties of the fuel-oil samples are experimentallyobtained and these data are defined in numerical analysis to design and test the performance of MTM sensor. Then, simulated MTM-based sensor structure is fabricated and measured to observe the efficiency and agreement to numerical results. Numerical and experimental studies are conducted in the microwave frequencies of 10–11 GHz. The experiment results are in accordance with the simulation ones. It can be seen from the results that the proposed MTM-based sensor can be implemented into the sensor industry for distinguishing the branded and unbranded fuel oil for several frequency regions.

A novel multiband metamaterial absorber (MTMA) is proposed which is capable of well presenting a polarization-insensitive and wide incident angle stability in the microwave frequency range. The proposed MTMA comprisingtwo vertically stacked asterisk-based copper resonators separated by dielectric layer of flame retardant type four and backed with a thin copper film. High-frequency structure simulator was used to simulate the absorber and to depict surface current distribution. The results showed that the absorber is operated at three narrow bands with high absorptivity of about 92, 100 and 100% at frequencies of 2.75, 4.3 and 9.5 GHz, respectively. The position of the resonant peaks can be effectively tuned by adjusting the geometry parameters of the structure, thereby achieving a multiband, polarization-independent andwide-angle absorber. The designed structure is important for the application of sensors, thermal images and in constructing broad multiband signals for electromagnetic compatibility/interference.
