Improved Frequency Response of Microstrip Lowpass Filter Using Defected Ground Structures
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 81, 31-40, 2018
Abstract
The frequency response characteristics of a basic microstrip lowpass filter improved using H-shaped defected ground structures are presented. The proposed defected ground structures behave as a resonant element at high frequency and thus eliminate the stopband frequencies to achieve wide stopband rejection. The 3 dB cutoff frequency of the filter is 1.935 GHz. Due to the defects etched in the ground plane of the basic structure, the harmonic rejection is improved from 5th to 10th order along with low insertion loss and voltage standing wave ratio together with good selectivity. The compact filter has a size of 0.0338λg2, with λg = 85.18 mm being the guided wavelength at cutoff frequency. The characteristics of the lowpass filter are verified through simulation and measurement. Consistent and stable results are obtained.
