A novel miniaturized combined-element frequency selective surface (CEFSS) with simple design process is proposed for multiband applications. In this article, complementary meandered structures and complementary grid structures are combined to realize controllable tri-band characteristics, which allow the designed FSS to transmit different frequency signals at 3.3, 4.5 and 5.4 GHz while reflecting signals at 4.0 and 4.9 GHz. The miniaturized combined-element FSS in this paper has the advantage of smaller size comparing to traditional tri-band FSSs due to the use of meandered structures, which contributes to its independence of both angle and polarization. The associated equivalent circuit is provided to analyze its transmission characteristics. Furthermore, the performances of the proposed structure are evaluated by simulation and measurement, and they agree well.
