AB - In this paper, the design of a novel planar narrowband
microstrip filter is presented. The structure is designed and manufac-
tured in microstrip technology, and it is formed by set of pairs of reso-
nators of different lengths. The length of one resonator in each pair is
adjusted so that a suitable odd resonance is tuned to the center fre-
quency of the filter. The length of the other resonator is adjusted so that
the next even resonance is tuned again to the center frequency of the
filter. The different path of the signal in each resonator produces a can-
cellation of energy at a given frequency, therefore implementing a trans-
mission zero in the insertion-loss response of the filter. First, this paper
presents a design example of a single set of resonators (basic unit cell)
working at the fifth and sixth resonances. Then, two basic unit cells
working at the first and second resonances are first optimized, and then
they are cascaded to show how higher-order filter responses can be im-
plemented. The measured results confirm the theoretical predictions, and
validate the new structures for high-selectivity applications.
