A chaos patterned metasurface absorber (CPMA) with three strong absorption peaks and a wide bandwidth has been designed. This CPMA presents a single-layer sandwich structure, which not only enables easy optimization by adjusting the surface pattern and model size but also contributes to the continuous effective bandwidth (EBW, with an absorptivity larger than 90%) from the multiple adjacent absorption peaks. The continuous EBW is from 4.28 to 9.56 GHz with a bandwidth of 76.3%. Meanwhile, analyses on the distributions of the surface current, electric field, and power loss density illustrate that the absorption mechanisms are mainly magnetic coupling resonance and dielectric loss. The experimental results confirm the good absorption performance with multi-peak and wide bandwidth for the fabricated CPMA sample, which shows potential applications in the field of anti-electromagnetic interference.
