Frequency Tuning Method for Small Profile Metamaterial Based on Tri-Ring Resonator

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 468)


The metamaterials are structures that show the different electromagnetic properties than usual transmission line/medium, such as negative values of permittivity, permeability and refraction. Due to unique behaviour of metamaterial, it gives passband or stopband response for a certain frequencies: a property called resonant. Typical response of metamaterial is narrow band and resonant at particular frequency based on its dimension. A method is proposed in this paper to control or shift the response frequency of tri-ring resonator without altering its dimension.
