We provide experimental evidence of phase resonances in metallic periodic structures in which each period comprises several subwavelength slits of the same width. We have analyzed and measured the response of these structures in the millimeter wave regime and show that phase resonances are characterized by a remarkable minimum in the transmission response, as predicted by numerical calculations. We compare experimental with numerical results, obtaining a very good agreement between them. This experimental confirmation encourages research in compound structures and their multiple potential applications, such as frequency selective surfaces.
