Abstract - The problem of retrieving the effective constitutive parameters for planar arrays of metallic complex-shaped particles printed on a dielectric substrate is considered in this paper. The equivalent homogenized layer gives exactly the same complex reflection and transmission coefficients for normal incident plane waves as in the original problem.
