We proposed a new absorber based on Crescent Split Ring Resonators (CSRRs) that shows wideband absorption. This absorber is made of biased ferrite slab by embedding CSRRs. Simulation and analysis is carried out by FDTD method. The results show that the corresponding high absorption mainly originates from the CSRR’s geometry. This structure can be tuned by external magnetic field.
