Abstract

© 2013 Springer Science+Business Media New York. All rights are reserved. Artificial transmission lines based on metamaterial concepts have been attracting increasing interest from the scientific community. The synthesis process of this type of artificial line is typically a complex task, due to the number of design parameters involved and their mutual dependence. Space mapping techniques are revealed to be very useful for automating the synthesis procedure of these kinds of structures. In this chapter, a review of their application to the automated synthesis of microstrip lines loaded with complementary split ring resonators (CSRRs), either with or without series capacitive gaps, will be presented. The most critical points related to the implementation of these space mapping techniques are discussed in detail. Different examples to illustrate and prove the usefulness of this synthesis methodology are presented.
