COUPLING COEFFICIENTS OF RESONATORS IN MICROWAVE FILTER THEORY

By V. V. Tyurnev

Full Article PDF (173 KB)

Abstract:
This paper is an overview of important concepts and formulas involved in the application of coupling coefficients of microwave resonators for the design of bandpass filters with a particular emphasis on the frequency dispersion of coupling coefficients. The presumptions and formulas are classified into accurate, approximate, and erroneous ones.
