Abstract: A metamaterial layer comprising of a conducting square mesh surrounding subwavelength holes has a largely pure imaginary effective refractive index. We explore the microwave transmissivity of a stack of such metamaterial layers separated by dielectric spacers. As expected, a family of high transmissivity bands is experimentally observed. It is found that the lowest frequency edge is independent of the number of unit cells making up the structure and is highly tunable by appropriate geometrical design of the metamaterial layers.
