Negative Group Velocity in a Split Ring Resonator-Coupled Microstrip Line
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 94, 33-47, 2009
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.
