Abstract

The session discusses the advances and challenges in synthesizing filter responses using micro-machined resonators in either the acoustic or electromagnetic domain. On the lower frequency end, acoustics resonators are arranged to produce reconfigurable or switchable responses. Towards higher frequencies, novel micro-machined chip-scale electromagnetic resonators are exploited to produce W-band filters. Suppression of unwanted acoustic resonance in an electromagnetic structure will also be discussed.

Abstract

This session features a variety of innovative planar filters using substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) and microstrip technologies. The first paper presents a compact, quasi-absorptive SIW filter using capacitively-loaded resonators. The second paper describes a compact, dual-mode SIW filter using uniform impedance resonators. Third, a compact bandpass filter using substrate integrated defected ground structure (SIDGS) is described that achieves a very wide stopband response. Next, stepped impedance resonators (SIR) and complementary split ring resonators (CSRR) are combined to create filters with high selectivity. The last paper presents a balanced bandpass filter using coupled lines to produce a quasi-elliptic bandpass and ultra-wide stopband response.
