peer-reviewed conference paper, 2014

Three examples of Frequency Selective Surfaces (FSS) realized from conducting yarns and bare copper wire on textiles are considered. The FSS arrays are produced using the techniques of weaving, handlooming, and embroidery. There is good agreement between predicted and measured transmission responses of a rectangular loop FSS structure, and for comparison purposes an example of a woven FSS using 1 pick of Amberstrand silver yarn gave similar results to a modeled counterpart.
