A compact superconducting ultra-wideband filter with a passband from 125 to 260 MHz is demonstrated. The filter consists of ten shunt short-circuited stubs separated by connecting lines. The short-circuited stubs are grounded via a grounding strip that is attached to the box wall by a number of SiAl bonding wires. The filter is realized on two 2 in YBCO/LaAlO3 substrates, which are connected by two bonding wires. The measured results demonstrate an insertion loss of less than 0.08 dB and a return loss of better than 21 dB without tuning. Furthermore, the experimental results of the filter are in good agreement with the simulated ones.
