Today two-dimensional periodic structures, called frequency-selective surfaces (FSS), find wide spread in different microwave and terahertz systems of electromagnetic signals parameters control. One of such structures, made by using the jet etching technology, which is the thin metallic screen with cross-shaped periodic holes, is considered in the present paper. The three-dimensional numerical model based on the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method allowing carrying out not only the analysis but the optimization of FSS parameters has been built to investigate its electrodynamic characteristics. Two most important parameters: transmission coefficient and band pass were calculated in W-range. Polynomial expressions for approximate estimation of the resonant wave lengths of the FSS under study have been obtained with the help of another model based on the finite element method (FEM). The influence of aperture elements sizes and electro-physical properties on FSS transmission characteristics is found. Obtained data have been utilized for development of ultra-narrowband filters with the central frequency of 90 GHz.
