In this paper, a novel method to design Quad-band stop frequency selective surface (FSS) is proposed to shield medical/non-medical devices from electromagnetic radiation of wifi/Bluetooth, GPS,1G, 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G frequencies. The proposed device can also be used in security and surveillance devices to protect them from electromagnetic attack. The FSS unit cell consists of convoluted structures on FR4 substrate. The study was performed by designing individual frequency selective surfaces for 1G, 2G, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth, GPS, 4G and 5G, then combining it to form a single Quad-band FSS unit.
