NEGATIVE GROUP VELOCITY IN A SPLIT RING RESONATOR-COUPLED MICROSTRIP LINE

By G. Monti and L. Tarricone

Full Article PDF (563 KB)

Abstract:
The dispersive behaviour of an artificial Transmission Line is investigated demonstrating the existence of a negative group velocity region. More specifically, the propagation of amplitude modulated signals in a microstrip line coupled with Split Ring Resonators is analyzed, investigating the influence of the propagating pulse shape on the possibility to observe a negative group delay.
