Abstract

A planar dual-composite right/left-handed (D-CRLH) transmission line (TL) structure is proposed. The characteristics such as dispersion relation and frequency response of this D-CRLH TL are analyzed by equivalent circuit analysis, Bloch-Floquet theory, full wave simulation and experiment. To demonstrate applications of the proposed structure, both bandstop filter and leaky-wave antenna are designed and implemented by the conventional print circuit board technology. The fabricated filter has a broad application because of its planar structure, small size and tunable stopband. The measured results also suggest that the leaky-wave antenna based on the D-CRLH concept can offer a scanning angle covering almost backfire-to-endfire directions.
