Novel band-stop active frequency selective surfaces (FSS) capable of modifying their response for different polarizations are proposed. Geometries based on full rings, and split rings are employed. The designs using full rings are able to tune over a wide frequency range while designs using split rings tune in a narrow frequency band. Both structures use a new biasing methodology which allows independent control of rows and columns of FSS arrays, therefore permitting independent modification of the transmission responses at the vertical and horizontal polarizations. Convoluting the shape of the elements significantly reduces the sensitivity to angle of wave incidence. The aim is to demonstrate a technology that could be used for various applications including modification of the electromagnetic architecture of buildings and the control of electromagnetic wave propagation to improve the efficiency of radio spectrum use. The surfaces incorporate commercially available, low cost, varactor diodes and surface mount resistors. Theoretical and experimental results confirm the operation of the surfaces within the UHF frequency band.
