An efficient approach to achieve the shielding effectiveness (SE) by using a frequency-selective surface (FSS) is presented. This FSS, which consists of cross dipoles and rings printed on the opposite sides of a single-layer FR-4 substrate, exhibits a wide, 7.5-GHz stopband to provide simultaneous shielding in both X- and Ka-bands. Experimental results confirm SE of the prototype over an ultra-wide band with more than 20-dB measured attenuation. The design is compact and suitable to provide shielding against the radiation interference caused by license-free and other radio systems.
