A novel approach for obtaining small periodicity frequency selective surface (FSS) screens with enhanced bandwidth performance is proposed. The issue of miniaturising FSS unit cells has gained extreme importance in recent metamaterials applications. To this end several procedures have been suggested in the literature. However, such procedures usually result in a bandwidth degradation as long as miniaturisation is improved. On the contrary, the bandwidth performance of the structures here presented is enhanced as the FSS periodicity gets smaller. Application of such structures to the synthesis of artificial magnetic conductors are also presented.
