In this paper, a novel structure in coplanar waveguide (CPW) technology which exhibits an equivalent negative magnetic permeability is described. Such a structure consists in a conventional coplanar waveguide that is loaded with split ring resonator (SRR) cells. Due to the configuration of the magnetic field components in the coplanar waveguide, by adequately placing the SRR cells, quasi-static resonance occurs. In the vicinity of such resonance frequency, the magnetic permeability exhibits a negative value in a certain frequency range. Full wave simulation results as well as measurement from fabricated prototypes validate initial assumptions, providing a new method to implement band rejection filters with very small size.
