Ghaffer, I Kiani., Ford, Kenneth L., Esselle, Karu P., Weily, Andrew R., Panagamuwa, C., Batchelor, John C. (2008) Single-Layer Bandpass Active Frequency Selective Surface. Microwave and Optical Technology Letters, 50 (8). pp. 2149-2151. ISSN 0895-2477. (doi:10.1002/mop.23615) (KAR id:17341)


A single-layer, bandpass, active FSS is presented. It shows good angle of incidence stability for TE incidence, at the operating frequency of 2.45 GHz. It is based on circular loop aperture with each unit cell having four PIN diodes. A novel method for dc biasing is used. About 12 dB average variation in transmission loss, between ON and OFF states, has been experimentally achieved at 2.45 GHz.
