Selective mode suppression in coplanar waveguides using metamaterial resonators

In this paper, it is shown that split-ring resonators (SRRs) and complementary split-ring resonators (CSRRs) can be used to selectively suppress the odd (slot) mode or the even (fundamental) mode, respectively, in coplanar waveguides. To this end, it is necessary to symmetrically etch the SRRs and the CSRRs in the line. An interpretation of this behavior is reported. The paper is also supported by experimental results, and some applications are highlighted.
