Abstract

This paper presents a closed-form analysis of composite right/left handed transmission lines. The ladder network structure of the transmission line allows to obtain a rational form of any twoport network representation. As a consequence of the rational form of the transfer functions, poles and residues are easily computed and the dominant ones selected leading to an efficient time-domain macromodel. The numerical results confirm the robustness and the accuracy of the proposed method in capturing the physics of composite right/left handed transmission lines.
