The propagation of a normally incident plane acoustic wave through a three-dimensional rigid slab with periodically placed holes is modeled and analyzed. The spacing of the holes A and B, the wavelength , and the thickness of the slab L are order one parameters compared to the characteristic size D of the holes, which is a small quantity. Scattering matrix techniques are used to derive expressions for the transmission and reflection coefficients of the lowest mode. These expressions depend only

These equations are approximately solved by exploiting the small parameter D / ͱ AB. Remarkably, this structure is transparent at certain frequencies and opaque for all others. Such a structure may be useful in constructing narrow-band filters and resonators.
