Recently, superior electromagnetic attenuation of some types of onion-like carbon (OLC) in comparison to other carbon materials was reported, demonstrating a promising high potential of OLC for the design of electromagnetic shielding materials over a broad microwave (2-38 GHz) frequency range. This communication presents the first study of spectral features of OLC-polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) composite films in the terahertz frequencies up to 3 THz, where the search of new operational materials and components is of particular importance for various promising applications.
