Abstract - Reflective and transmitting properties of several layers of double-periodic arrays are studied. In the arrays, elements are conducting inclusions of various shapes. It is shown that in these structures all the phenomena recently found in dense wire grids with periodical defects (so called photonic band-gap structures) can be observed and explained in simple terms of inter-layer and inclusion resonances. Frequency-selective (with two and more stop bands) and polarization transformation properties of these arrays are demonstrated.
