This paper deals with a novel miniaturized FSS with wide stop band characteristics for UWB applications. The proposed FSS consists of garland like design printed on either side of the dielectric substrate. The design provides a bandwidth equal to 3.5 GHz at -20 dB reference level of insertion loss which lies within the UWB range. The design delivers stable response for various angular incidences. In addition to this, the symmetrical nature of the FSS holds identical response for both TE and TM Mode of polarization. The proposed geometry is fabricated and its simulated results are validated with measurements. A comprehensive analysis is made by adjusting various parameters associated with the proposed design.
