Suppression of end-fired emission for a miniaturized-element frequency-selective shielding surface with finite size using EBG

A special surface wave only exists on a finite-size frequency-selective surface (FSS), arrayed in a sub-wavelength periodic element. This surface wave induced by external incidence may cause strong end-fired emission and highly degrade the performance of the FSS applied as electromagnetic shielding especially along the end-fired direction. A hybrid design… (More)
