Offering good performance in terms of all polarizations affected and good angular stability, the ring element is a popular choice in frequency selective surface (FSS) designs. This paper introduces a topology for two-state switching of a ring based FSS. The two states offered by the surface enable it to be either transparent or reflective at the frequency of interest. A design targeted at the 2.45 GHz WLAN band, and intended for the control of the electromagnetic architecture of buildings (EAoB), is realized both by simulation and measurement, the results of which are presented and evaluated.

Taylor received the B.Eng(Hons) from the University of Greenwich, U.K. and since 2008 is studying for a Ph.D. degree at the University of Kent, Canterbury, U.K. He has many years industrial experience as a Research & Development engineer. His main focus has been VHF transceiver design, particularly marine band, working with such companies as Simrad and Navico. More recently he worked for Thales as part of the radio team at the Channel Tunnel.
    • His main research interests are frequency selective surfaces, particularly active, and their applications in the built environment. Edward (Ted) Parker graduated from St mbridge University, U.K., with an MA degree in physics and PhD in radio astronomy. He established the antennas group in the Electronics Laboratory at the University of Kent, U.K. The early work of that group focused on reflector antenna design, later on frequency selective surfaces and patch antennas. Ted is a member of the IET. One of his interests is the study and overhaul of antique clocks. He was appointed Reader at the University of Kent in 1977, and since 1987 he has been Professor of Radio Communications, now Professor Emeritus
