Abstract  A band-pass frequency selective surface (FSS) with polarization rotation property is proposed. The proposed polarization rotating FSS (PR-FSS) is a two-dimensional periodic structure, its unit cell is an antenna-filter-antenna (AFA) module, and the polarization directions of the upper and lower antennas in each AFA module are orthogonal to each other, so the PR-FSS can achieve frequency selection and 90 degrees polarization rotation at the same time. The numerical simulation demonstrate that the anticipated frequency selection and polarization rotation are realized by the PR-FSS in the frequency band from 8.84 GHz to 10.30 GHz with a relative bandwidth of 15.26%, and the maximum insertion loss in the pass band is only 0.17 dB. Finally, one effective experiment validation is carried out, a reasonable agreement is observed between the experimental and simulated results except for a slight deviation caused by fabrication error and measurement tolerance.
