In this paper, a novel terminated cross-shaped resonator (TCSR) is analyzed and used to design ultra-wideband (UWB) bandpass filters (BPFs) with fixed and reconfigurable notch bands. It is found that the TCSR can exhibit a maximum three poles and two zeros when open and short terminations are applied. The intrinsic zero is simply used for the implementation(More)
Analysis and applications of coupled cross-shaped resonator (CCSR) for fixed and fully reconfigurable differential bandpass filters (BPFs) design are focused in this paper. CCSRs with open and capacitive terminations are presented and discussed. One differential BPF named Filter I centered at 4.5 GHz with fixed differential-mode (DM) and common-mode (CM)(More)
An ultra-wideband (UWB) bandpass filter (BPF) with notched band and wide stopband has been designed, fabricated, and discussed in this work. The proposed UWB BPF is constructed on the basis of microstrip/slotline transitions, which can be used as the feeding structure to provide strong coupling for wideband BPF. The fabricated BPF has good in-band(More)
Chemical analysis of Chinese black ink on xuan paper is useful for the authentication of Asian artwork. The analysis has to be nondestructive and has to accommodate artworks of all sizes. We apply three analytical techniques, ArF laser-induced plume fluorescence, Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, and portable X-ray fluorescence (pXRF) to(More)
