Resonant structures capable of metamaterial behavior can be quite beneficial when it comes to microwave filter designs. In particular, split-ring resonators (SRRs) and complementary SRRs (CSRRs) were found to enhance the performance of a conventional stepped-impedance microstrip lowpass filter (LPF) when etched into the filter’s ground plane. The metamaterial-like properties of CSRRs include the capabilities to achieve negative relative permeability and permittivity within the rejection
