    Isotropic frequency selective surface (FSS) made of cubic arrangements of split ring resonators (SRRs) is proposed and analyzed. For this purpose, a suitable isotropic modification of the SRR was used in the design of a cubic unit element invariant under the tetrahedral point symmetry group. It was experimentally demonstrated that the transmission through such a FSS is angle and polarization independent. For comparison, another FSS, whose unit elements do not satisfy necessary symmetries, was measured, showing clearly anisotropic behavior. We feel then that symmetries play an important role. Potential device applications are envisioned for antenna technology at microwave and terahertz frequencies. © 2007 American Institute of Physics.
