Purpose: Investigation of the electrodynamic properties of a Fabry-Perot metaresonator formed by two parallel perfectly conducting, two-dimensionally periodic, two-element screens of finite thickness with rectangular holes. The resonator is excited by a plane linearly polarized electromagnetic wave. The basic cell of each of the screens used as the metaresonator mirrors contains two lengths of rectangular waveguides of different transverse sections.

Design/methodology/approach: An operator method for solving the 3D problems of electromagnetic wave diffraction by multielement two-dimensionally periodic structures is used in the study. The computation algorithm uses the partial domain technique and the method of generalized scattering matrices.

Findings: As follows from the results of the numerical modeling made, the magnitude of the plane wave reflected from the metaresonator turns to zero at fixed frequencies lying below the cutoff frequencies for the rectangular waveguide sections embedded in the resonator mirrors. The effect of the total electromagnetic wave transmission through the metaresonator at the first lower frequency is characterized by a strong localization of the electromagnetic field in the resonator volume. The reason is excitation of the metaresonator by the exponentially descending field penetrating inside the resonator through the evanescent holes at the resonance frequency. The second low-frequency resonance of the total electromagnetic wave transmission through the metaresonator is associated with the trapped-mode resonance, which is observed in multielement two-dimensionally periodic structures. This case is characterized by a strong localization of the electromagnetic field from both sides near the metaresonator mirror surfaces.

Conclusions: The unique electrodynamic properties of the metaresonator can find application in the devices for measuring the electrophysical parameters of composite materials with high losses. The effect of strong localization of the electromagnetic field both in the resonator volume and near the mirror surfaces can be used for monitoring the gaseous substances in crowded places.
