A New Coupling Matrix Extracting Method From the Frequency Response

Abstract

Coupled resonators are widely used in many applications, especially for filters. It is necessary to know the coupling matrix of those resonators in order to further modify and/or optimize the existing design. In recent years, many efforts have been made to generate a coupling matrix. In this paper, a new method is proposed, which can be applied for both the synchronous and asynchronous coupled resonators. With this method, the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of the coupling matrix can be generated directly from the simulated frequency responses, and the coupling matrix can then be determined. Typical examples are illustrated for the cases such as a quadruplet with an image, real, or complex transmission zeros. The impact of loss is also discussed. As a matter of fact, this method has been successfully used in the design of high-temperature superconducting filters
