Techniques from image-parameter filter theory are used to derive frequency dependent representations of the characteristic impedance, phase, and attenuation of some left-handed and right-handed periodic transmission structures, with implications for the design of artificial transmission lines composed of a finite number of cascaded unit-cell circuits.
