Abstract

The transmittance of inductive single-layer and multilayer cross-shaped metal meshes has been calculated with the Micro-Stripes software program. The effect of symmetric and asymmetric alignment of the crosses of one mesh with respect to another was studied and compared with transmission line theory, which presents the nonaligned case. Significant differences are found for small spacing at approximately 1/5 the periodicity constant, whereas the differences disappear for large spacing. A pair of coupled surface waves is used to represent the mode of a single mesh. The resulting modes corresponding to the transmittance of multilayer metal meshes are interpreted by modes composed of resonance modes of a single mesh coupled by Fabry-Perot modes depending on the separation.
