Investigation of radiation effects for 1-D left-handed transmission lines

The equivalent circuit for the RLH-TL is employed to consider radiation effects due to the inclusion of a series capacitor and shunt inductor in a unit cell for the right/left-handed transmission line (RLH-TL). The S-parameters for unit cells with N=1, 3, 5, and 10 are analyzed in various aspects based the EM and circuit simulations in a trial to… (More)
