|Abstract: ||This paper presents a novel compact unilayer frequency selective surface (FSS) for ultra-wideband (UWB) applications particularly for gain enhancement of printed antennas. The proposed FSS unit cell consists of simple metallic patterns printed on both sides of 14 mm × 14 mm FR4 substrate. The proposed FSS has very low transmission co-efficient and linearly decreasing reflection phase over the bandwidth of 9 GHz in 3–12 GHz range, which makes it suitable candidate to provide in-phase reflection for UWB antennas. For the validation of gain-enhancement capability, the FSS is paired with a general monopole UWB antenna demonstrating an average gain improvement of 4 dB. The antenna composite has a maximum gain of 8.9 dBi.|
