A bandpass filter (BPF) design using a dual-mode microstrip triangular loop resonator is presented for the first time. The circuit produces frequency responses with one real finite frequency transmission zero and one imaginary finite frequency zero on either side of the passband. Depending on the perturbation arrangement, the nature of the coupling between degenerate modes causes the zeros to exchange their axis locations from real to imaginary and from imaginary to real while keeping their magnitude. This behavior results in frequency responses that are suitable for applications with asymmetrical requirements. Results show 8% bandwidth filters with insertion loss ranging from 0.82 dB to 1.4dB at 10 GHz. Advantages in size reduction and design flexibility are demonstrated when the triangular loop is compared to other dual-mode resonators.
