This new addition to the prestigious Wiley Series in Microwave and Optical Engineering presents the first comprehensive coverage of Frequency Selective Surfaces (FSS) and active grid arrays, the two-dimensional periodically arranged array elements which may be etched on, or imbedded in, one or multiple layers of dielectric laminates. Because of its filtering frequency properties, this technology, which has attracted much interest over the past two decades, is being used to create filtering devices in microwave and higher frequency bands. With Frequency Selective Surface and Grid Array, it is no longer necessary to sift through a multitude of research papers and reports. Here, in one self-contained volume, is a thorough and up-to-date treatment of the concept, theory, applications, design, and fabrication techniques for periodic arrays. Furthermore, the book provides a complete reference for the technological advances in FSS, including the recent technology of active grid arrays. The first part of the book is devoted to the fundamentals and analytical techniques pertaining to FSS and grid arrays, including the advanced analyses of the conjugate gradient method and the generalized mode-matching technique with multiple dielectrics or nonsimilar grid arrays. In the second part, the book deals with implementation and application, describing the numerous applications of this technology, from the reflector antenna system used in satellite and spacecraft communications and band-pass radome to solar energy grids. The expert contributions to this volume make it useful both as a tutorial and as a reference for project and system/design engineers working with antennas, optics, millimeter waves, microwaves, radar, and low observable radomes.
