In this paper, we used a topology gradient method coupled with a finite element method in order to optimize the shape of a microstrip component. We appended a 2D distribution of metal on the substrate and tried to optimize its form by taking benefits of the topology gradient method. The concept of topology gradient using a numerical method is given in this article, and finally, the results of using this approach in the context of microwave component optimization is shown
