For a TM/sub 01 delta / mode dielectric rod resonator placed coaxially in a TM/sub 01/ cutoff circular waveguide, characteristics such as the resonant frequency, its temperature coefficient, the unloaded Q, and the other resonances are discussed on the bases of accurate calculations using the mode-matching method. The results show that this resonator compares favorably with a conventional TE/sub 01 delta / mode dielectric resonator, particularly for realization of a high unloaded Q. Analytical results also verify that interresonator coupling between these two resonators can be expressed equivalently by a capacitively coupled LC resonant circuit. A four-stage Chebyshev filter having a ripple of 0.035 dB and an equiripple bandwidth of 27 MHz at a center frequency of 11.958 GHz was fabricated using these resonators. Its insertion loss is 0.5 dB, which corresponds to an unloaded Q of 17000, and no spurious response appears in the frequency range below 17 GHz.<>
