A Design Proposal for Ultrawide Band Frequency Selective Surface

Francisco Carlos Gurgel da Silva Segundo, Antonio Luiz Pereira de Siqueira Campos, Alfredo Gomes Neto


In this paper a three layer FSS is described which provides a ultrawide band (UWB) response. The layers use plain rectangular patches, and rectangular patches with one or two notches which provide multi-band responses; by cascading them an UWB response is obtained covering the band 4.05 - 14.12 GHz, for vertical polarization and the band 5.05 - 15.00 GHz, for horizontal polarization. Transmission properties of the proposed structure were simulated and measured.
