Design of frequency selective windows for improved indoor outdoor communication
Publikation/Tidskrift/Serie: IEEE Trans. Antennas Propagat.
The use of low emissivity windows degrades radio communication. This Communication presents design, manufacturing, and test measurements for an energy saving window that is transparent to GSM, GPS, and 3G radio wave frequencies. A frequency selective structure (FSS) is used in the metallic coating of the window to provide the desirable transparency in the frequency range from 900 MHz to 2 GHz. The periodic pattern used for the FSS is of the aperture type and the elements are hexagon loops. The FSS simulations are performed using the mode matching technique as well as the finite-difference time domain method. A frequency selective window was manufactured from a commercially available low emissivity glass. Measurements indicate that the frequency selective window has approximately 10 dB better transmission in the 900 MHz-2 GHz band than the original window.
