Balanced and unbalanced composite right/left-handed transmission lines are used in the design of resonators. The balanced resonator is designed by changing the nonlinear phase response in order to control the spacing between modes and the Q factor. Two balanced ring resonators are measured and one demonstrates increased mode spacing/decreased Q factor and the other demonstrates decreased mode spacing/increased loaded Q factor. The unbalanced resonator is designed by changing the nonlinear phase response and magnitude response. A measured unbalanced ring resonator shows increased mode spacing with a reasonable Q factor. A microstrip line resonator is measured to demonstrate higher frequency capabilities.
