A novel lightweight onion-like carbon (OLC)-based polymer composite with high electromagnetic (EM) shielding ability in the frequency range of 26 − 37 GHz is presented. OLC have been produced via the large-scale production technology based on the annealing of detonation nanodiamond under vacuum conditions (or in inert atmosphere). It was proved experimentally that OLC EM shielding capacity can be optimized by varying the nanocarbon cluster size and nanodiamond annealing temperature so that effective EM coatings can be produced.
