Abstract Reconfigurable and tunable frequency selective surfaces (FSSs) are of significant interest in applications such as tunable radomes and adaptive screening of unwanted wireless transmissions. Conventional FSSs require additional bias circuitry to tune the operating frequency or to change its characteristics. In this letter, a new tuning technique using a spring resonator element is proposed. This technique can be applied to FSS design to make it reconfigurable and/or to fine-tune the response. The FSS frequency response can be adjusted by changing the spring height with applied pressure. The functional characteristic of the FSS can also be altered between a bandstop and bandpass filter response. A parametric analysis of the novel spring FSS is undertaken in CST software, and the results are validated with experimental measurement.
