Coupled-line stages are designed with corrugated periods to accurately allocate inherent transmission zeros at three leading even harmonics of design frequency, fo. The corrugation pattern is finely trimmed so that phase velocities of the two eigenmodes can be simultaneously equalized at these frequencies. By decreasing number of coupled periods in a stage, frequencies of the zeros can be arbitrarily scaled up to a certain extent. In this way, a parallel-coupled line bandpass filter with a cascade of several such stages can be synthesized to be free of spurious harmonics up to at least 10 fo, with aid of tapped input/output coupling scheme. The measured data of the fabricated bandpass filter show a rejection level of better than 30 dB in the upper stopband up to 18 fo.
