A single-layer substrate frequency selective surface (FSS) made of miniaturized elements is proposed, with two controllable passbands obtained. Each FSS element consists of a loop wire on the top metal layer and its complementary pattern etched at the bottom one, which provides two transmission poles separated by a transmission zero. An equivalent circuit model is given for predicting the characteristics of the designed FSS, and a good agreement between the simulated and measured transmission coefficients is obtained. Furthermore, the cases of oblique wave incidence and cascading FSSs are also measured and examined.
