Discipline summary

Our subject may be divided in two main sub-subjects. The first one is Microwave Filter. And another sub-subject is Metamaterial. Now, we will be present a brief idea to the mentioned above:
Microwave Filters play important roles in many RF/Microwave applications. They are used to separate or combine different frequencies. The main filter functions are to reject undesirable signal frequencies outside the filter pass-band. The electromagnetic spectrum is limited and has to be shared; filters are used to select or confine the RF/Microwave signals within assigned spectral limits. Emerging applications such as wireless communications continue to challenge RF/Microwave signals with ever more stringent requirement higher performance, smaller size, lighter weight, and lower cost [1, 2].
Metamaterials are artificial; a metamaterial is a macroscopic composite having a synthetic periodic or non-periodic cellular architecture designed to produce an optimized combination, not available in nature, of two or more responses to specific excitation [4, 5 and 16]. Metamaterials have been a subject of great interest in the scientific community since the beginning of this millennium, when it was experimentally demonstrated by Smith and Shelby [3, 4]. The existence of left handed wave propagation in an artificial medium composed of metallic wires and split ring resonators (SRRs) [5, 12, 13, and 15]. This represented the corroboration of the seminal (theoretical) work carried out by Veselago in 1968, where the exotic properties of artificial structures with simultaneous negative permeability and permittivity were anticipated [6, 10, 11, and 14]. The study of metamaterials has been very active in recent years. In microwave engineering, applications include the design of compact filters [7, 17, 18 and 19] and other microwave components with superior performance and/or exhibiting novel functionalities such as frequency selectivity, roll of band edge and miniaturization of size [8–9].
