Abstract

An inductive mesh was measured for transmission as a function of frequency, incidence angle, and polarization. The experimental data agree well with Chen’s waveguide theory for meshes as long as an adequate number of modes are included in the calculations. To simplify calculations of mesh transmission a lumped circuit model has been developed to fit Chen’s theory. This model predicts transmission for the two major polarizations and a variety of angles to within 1%.
