Periodic coplanar waveguides (CPWs) with inductive loading are thoroughly studied by resorting to unit-length transmission parameters, i.e., propagation constant and characteristic impedance, of an equivalent dispersive and/or lossy transmission line. The admittance-type method of moments (MoM) is at first formulated to full-wave modeling of a finite-cell periodic CPW with the two feeding lines and then the short-open-calibration procedure is carried out to deembed the two-port ABCD matrix of the core periodic CPW section. Thus, the above two parameters can be extracted from the MoM simulation to exhibit their guided-wave characteristics, i.e., slow-wave and bandstop behaviors. It is demonstrated for the first time that, within the bandstop or bandgap, the propagation constant must become complex with a nonzero attenuation constant, while the characteristic impedance appears purely imaginary. Three periodic CPW circuits with six finite cells are then characterized on a basis of the transmission-line theorem and the derived S-parameters are validated by Momentum simulation and RF measurement.
