Near-field behavior of elementary electric and magnetic dipoles close to a plane layer (or layers) of engineered composite materials is analyzed using the rigorous analytical approach. Some results of computations are represented for composite media containing conductive inclusions. These composites provide shielding mainly due to absorption of electromagnetic energy. The effect of conductivity of inclusions and their geometry (through their aspect ratio) on the absorption and radiation efficiency of a radiator near composite layers is analyzed.
