Defected ground structure (DGS), coplanar line, stopband filter, multi-stop stopband.


A novel and compact multi-band stop filter with good selectivity and  wide upper pass band performance  with good rejection based on defected ground structure (DGS) integrating a circular ring  resonator to suppress undesired spurious bands frequency or harmonics in microwave and millimeter wave circuits is proposed.

The presented filter has a compact size because the circular ring resonator is integrated in DGS, the both of them are etching in the ground plane.
