In this article, a novel reconfigurable bandpass-bandstop filter based on the varactor-loaded closed-ring resonators is presented, where the bandpass and bandstop characteristics can be easily controlled by tuning the varactor bias voltage. This reconfigurability results from the perturbation effect on the degenerated even and odd modes of the closed-ring resonator. When the perturbation varactor is at the series resonance, its reactance vanishes, so a bandstop characteristic is formed. When the perturbation varactor is changed to be capacitive, the bandpass characteristic is generated. Additional varactors, incorporated at input and output ports, are tuned along with the perturbation varactors to maintain good return losses.
