Abstract

All-dielectric frequency selective surfaces (FSSs) can serve as an alternative to their metallic counterparts when they must operate at very high power, loss must be minimized, or when the surface itself must be low observable. When metals are avoided, there is a weaker interaction with electromagnetic waves and it becomes more difficult to achieve strong suppression in the stop band while also realizing compact size, wide field-of-view or broadband operation. One attractive approach utilizes guided-mode resonance (GMR) as the filtering mechanism, but this phenomenon exhibits several drawbacks that must be overcome for practical application at radio frequencies. This paper introduces the concept of guide-mode resonance for FSSs and describes how they can be made to operate with a dramatically fewer number of periods than conventional GMR devices.
