Printed frequency selective surfaces on textiles

A novel technique for inkjet printing frequency selective surfaces (FSSs) on textiles is introduced. The challenge of printing an inkjet layer of 3 μm thickness on polyester cotton with a surface roughness of the order of 150 μm is achieved with a screen-printed interface layer. The conducting inkjet layer is then printed directly on top of the interface layer. A screen mask was used so that the interface layer was only printed directly below the conducting ink. A square FSS structure has been fabricated and the measured shielding has been compared to simulations
