A novel structure for coplanar-waveguide transmission lines with low impedance and low loss is demonstrated in this paper. The new structure simply has a high dielectric SrTiO3 thin film underneath the coplanar conductors. Due to the high dielectric constant of SrTiO3, the coplanar line exhibited characteristic impedance as low as 18 Ω with a slot width of 5 μm and the center conductor width of 50 μm, while a conventional coplanar line on GaAs showed only 30 Ω with the same configuration. The newly developed coplanar structure is easily applicable for present GaAs monolithic-microwave integrated-circuit (MMIC) technology, especially for power MMIC's and low-impedance devices
