Transmission line models for negative refractive index media and associated implementations without excess resonators

Description

This item was taken from the IEEE Periodical ' Transmission line models for negative refractive index media and associated implementations without excess resonators ' Recently, three-dimensional composite periodic media comprising split-ring resonators (SRR) and thin wires have been shown to exhibit a negative refractive index in the frequency range around the SRR resonance. In this letter, we propose transmission line models for studying and interpreting the electromagnetic propagation behavior of such materials. Based on these equivalent transmission line models, we show that by periodically loading a network of transmission lines with series capacitors and shunt inductors, a negative refractive index medium can be synthesized without excess resonators, thus leading to wideband behavior. These proposed media have tailorable properties over a broad frequency range. Moreover, they are completely planar, frequency scalable, more compact, and easier to implement for RF/microwave circuit applications than their SRR/wire counterparts.
