Investigations on the Analysis and Design of Aperiodic Frequency Selective Surfaces for Space Applications
An investigation on the design of aperiodic FSS is presented. First, an accurate yet efficient method which allows the analysis of finite sized aperiodic FSS has been developed. Subsequently, an optimisation method is implemented which optimises all the FSS elements to obtain an FSS design with an aperiodic element layout. Preliminary designs of aperiodic FSS are presented and the numerical results are discussed.
