Abstract: This communication presents a single flower shaped resonator frequency selective surface (FSS) unit cell with stable oblique angles of incidence for both horizontal and vertical polarizations. The proposed FSS structure which can impede the frequencies from 3GHz to 6GHz at 3dB insertion loss is presented. The proposed FSS comprise an improved decagon to form a flower-shaped structure that exhibits single narrow stop band characteristics. The flower shaped FSS acts like a band-stop filter with center frequency of 4.8 GHz and notch band frequency ranging from 4.2GHz to 5.3GHz at 10dB insertion loss and 320MHz bandwidth at 20dB insertion loss. The designed FSS can use for shielding of public safety WLAN frequency. We present the equivalent circuit model and the surface current distribution to illustrate the resonance characteristics of the miniaturized FSS. To validate the design and simulation results, the proposed FSS is fabricated and tested in a semi-anechoic chamber.
