This paper presents a simple method to analyze and design a desired frequency band rejection in microstrip transmission lines with defected signal strip structure. Also some new structures called ADMS have been introduced and compared. The proposed circuits can be applied to various microwave and millimeter wave components. Finally this paper introduces the RCMS method, a very fast and efficient solution that determines current distribution on the cross section of the signal strip with arbitrary defection pattern. One microstrip line with defected patterns is discussed and then modeled using RCMS method. The results of the current and voltage distribution along an ADMS obtained using RCMS method are in good agreement with those obtained using FEKO (a full wave simulator).
