Artificial Transmission Line with Left/Right-Handed Behavior Based on Wire Bonded Interdigital Capacitors

Progress In Electromagnetics Research B, Vol. 11, 245-264, 2009
Abstract
A novel artificial transmission line with right/left-handed behavior is presented in this paper. The unit cell of the new artificial line consists of one series and one shunt wire bonded interdigital capacitors. When wire bonded interdigital capacitors are used, the artificial line has a wider frequency band of operation. A combined analytical-graphical design method of the proposed artificial transmission line is also presented. The method has been assessed with the help of an electromagnetic solver based on the method of moments, and experimental work.
