As an example, we calculate the dipole moments induced to the structure consisting of two grids of capacitively loaded wires (in this case grid 2 is absent in Fig. 1a).
Modeling and Analysis of Composite Antenna Superstrates Consisting on Grids of Loaded Wires
Discussion on the modeling approach: It is known that at low frequencies (frequencies at which the structural dimensions are small compared to the wavelength) the dispersion properties of lattices of capacitively loaded wires and dipole scatterers rather closely resemble each other .
