Design, Analysis and Characterisation of Spoof Surface Plasmon Polaritons based Wideband Bandpass Filter at Microwave Frequency
This paper presents the wideband bandpass filter (BPF) in the microwave frequency domain. The realisation approach is based on spoof surface plasmon polaritons (SSPPs) phenomenon using plasmonic metamaterial. A novel unit cell is designed for filter design using an LC resonator concept. Then SSPPs BPF is realised using an optimised mode converter and five unit cells. This paper includes a brief design detail of the proposed novel unit cell. The passband of BPF is achieved at approximately 1.20 - 5.80 GHz, 3dB bandwidth is tentatively 4.60 GHz and the insertion loss is less than 2 dB approximately over the passband. The overall dimension of fabricated filter is (90 x 45) mm. A basic schematic of transmission line representation is also proposed to evaluate the BPF structure.
