In this paper, a miniaturized absorptive/transmissive radome with switchable passband and wide absorbing band is designed. Pin diodes are loaded on the radome in order to obtain switchable passband and miniaturized unit cells, while the resistor loaded double square loops are used to absorb the incident wave. The total thickness of the radome is only 4.5mm. Its transmission and absorbing properties are verified by both synthetic experiments and measurements in the anechoic chamber. Furthermore, the switchable passband of the radome is also evaluated using a waveguide simulator.
