In this article, an analysis of resonant type metamaterial transmission lines is carried out. Specifically, the effects of the dimensions and resonator characteristics on the frequency response are studied and interpreted to the light of the equivalent circuit model of the lines based on split ring resonators and complementary split ring resonators. In this work, the duality between both kinds of lines can also be observed. This study is important for the application of these artificial lines to microwave circuit design, because important guidelines concerning device bandwidth can be inferred. © 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
