Paper Abstract

It is shown that microwave radiation can be transmitted through a wall of aluminum-alloy bricks even though the width of the gaps between the metallic elements is less than 5% of the radiation wavelength. Up to 90% of the radiation made incident upon the wall is transmitted, with both linear polarizations being passed. Experimental results are compared to theoretical predictions. Proving that the transmission mechanism relies upon self-coupled surface plasmon resonances in what are effectively Fabry-Perot cavities.
