Nowadays, due to the problems that exist in terms of noise pollution and its impact on health, it is common to use acoustic barriers. Traditionally, these barriers consisted of rigid and continuous materials that are interposed between the source and the receiver. However, there are situations in which the characteristics of the problem necessitate the use of new noise shielding systems. The design and characterization of open acoustic barriers is presented in this work. These are tunable acoustic barriers based on periodic arrays of subwavelength slits. The acoustic response of periodically arranged rectangular scatters with a subwavelength separation between them and embedded in air is discuss. The results point out that these systems can be tuned to attenuate specific band noise and can be used instead of classical barriers.
