In this paper, we demonstrate a new method to control the enhanced transmission due to Fabry–Perot resonances through an array of dielectric-loaded slots in a thick metallic screen. We obtain approximate analytical formulas for each polarization (TM and TE) using a mode-matching technique based on the assumption that the slots are small compared to a free-space wavelength and that the metallic screen is a perfect electric conductor as is appropriate for microwave frequency applications. We show that the bandwidth and locations of enhanced transmission can be controlled by the angle of incidence or by making the material filling the slots inhomogeneous. Computational results are given that demonstrate the influence of the angle of incidence on the enhanced transmission bandwidth. We show that the separation between enhanced transmission frequencies can be controlled by introducing a gap within the slot with a different dielectric constant. Also, we illustrate how the total transmission bandwidth can be increased by adjusting the angle of incidence and the gap size.
