With the rapid development of electronic information technology, electromagnetic wave is more and more widely used. The electromagnetic wave in the environment not only interferes with the electromagnetic control system, but also damages the physical and mental health of human beings. Therefore, it is very important to develop absorbing materials with electromagnetic absorption ability. In addition, the application value of military stealth technology has greatly promoted the study of absorbing materials. In the past ten years, our country has been fruitful in the field of absorbing materials. In this paper, the main progress of China's absorbing materials has been reported through a brief introduction of 10 high level papers published in China.
