The influence of the one-layer cylindrical plasma array on microwave transmission attenuation was experimentally studied with the lab-made, vector network microwave measurement system in the frequency range from 2 GHz to 18 GHz. The impacts of the key factors, including the micro-wave polarization, electron densities, and structure of the array, on the transmission attenuation were evaluated, respectively. The results show that when it comes to the transmission attenuation, the array affects the transverse magnetic (TM) wave more effectively than the transverse electric (TE) wave. The effective frequency ranges were found to be 2~10 GHz for the TM wave and 2~7 GHz for the TE wave, respectively. In addition, an increase of the electron density and a decrease of the cell separation considerably improved the attenuation in the effective frequency ranges.
