Extreme Filtering

Below is the response of a coupled-resonator bandpass filter with extreme bandwidth. I designed this filter purely by iterative 3D EM analysis plus some minor port-tuning work in a circuit simulator and optimisation. It is perhaps the filter with the widest passband I have designed – so far… ┬áStandard text book theory suggests it can’t be done with the filter structure I used. Well – I have done it. Not only that – it can also take a few kW of RF power.
