This paper proposes a circular polarization selective surface (CPSS) design consisting of two meander-line circular polarizers and a linear polarizer. No vias are required. These polarizers are individually designed with ANSYS-HFSS (High Frequency Structure Simulator) software whereas the response of the overall cascade CPSS is computed with the GSM approach. A cascade CPSS which includes three-layer meander-line polarizers is designed and fabricated. Good agreement is shown between experimental and simulated results, with only the TE00 and TM00 modes in the GSM analysis. Finally, analysis of the circular polarizers based on simple filter theory is done to better understand how the performance of the whole structure can be improved.
