Abstract

The theory of even/odd mode based dual composite right/left handed (D-CRLH) unit cells is developed, and a unified modeling approach based on stubs is presented. The theory shows that these unit cells will have left-handed behavior if the even and odd mode corresponding stubs have dual behavior. Several unit cells are investigated. The proposed models agree with EM simulations. Experimental results confirm the presented theory.
