Abstract:

The results of the numerical analysis of reflecting and transmitting properties of multi-layered structures composed of doubly periodic arrays of metallic strips are presented in the paper. Strip elements have been selected, having a shape of letters C, S and OMEGA. The strips of the arrays are placed on a thin dielectric substrate. Strip elements can have bulk impedance loading, included in the break of strip. The interference of multi-layered array systems, due to multiple reflections of waves between layers, combined with the resonance properties of single layers lead the structure to acquire properties typical for photonic band gap crystals PBG.
