This paper presents a new design of a fifth order bandpass waveguide filter with Chebyshev response which operates in the X-band at 10 GHz center frequency. By using a complementary split ring resonator (CSRR) upper and lower sections that are placed on the same transverse plane and are not on the same parallel line, CSRR sections are shifted from each other. A simple model of lumped elements RLC is introduced and calculated as well. The model of the proposed bandpass waveguide filter is synthesized and designed by using computer simulation technology (CST). Hereafter, by selecting proper physical parameters and optimizing the overall CSRR geometrical dimensions by taking into consideration the coupling effect between resonators, a shortened length of the overall filter, and a wider bandwidth over the conventional one are obtained. As a result, the proposed filter is compared with the conventional bandpass waveguide filter that is coupled by inductive irises with Chebyshev response, in addition to other studies that have used the metamaterial technique. The proposed filter reduces the overall physical length by 31 % and enhances the bandwidth up to 37.5 % . View Full-Text
