Periodic arrangements of metallic scatterers have in the past decades found numerous applications as Frequency Selective Surfaces . More recently Artificial Magnetic Conductors (AMCs)  have been presented based on arrays printed on grounded dielectrics. AMC and FSS have been employed to reduce the profile of Salisbury screen absorbers in  and  respectively. Another variation where the resistive sheet was substituted by a resistive FSS and the ground plane by a metallic FSS was presented in . AMC structures have also been proposed as thin absorbers. A double square loop AMC where lumped resistors were embedded in the metallic elements was proposed as thin absorber in . In [7-9] AMC structures consisting of resistive elements were proposed, while  suggested the use of metallic AMCs on lossy substrates. Tunable designs are presented in  based on liquid crystal (LC) technology.
