Frequency selective surface (FSS) based sensors have found application as sensors in the last decade. In this paper, a new sensor design is proposed for two-dimensional in-plane strain sensing. The unit cell of the FSS-based sensor includes two slot dipoles, oriented normal to one another and each with different dimensions, to create two unique resonant frequencies when interrogated with an incident electric field normal to the direction of measured strain. In this way, 2D strain can be characterized concurrently and independently. The error due to strain orthogonal to the direction of interest, along with the error due to the presence of shear strain, has also been characterized. The sensor has a maximum of 12% error for an applied strain due to 4% strain orthogonal to the measurement direction, and no more than 8% error for a maximum of 4% of shear strain.
