Resonance characteristics of a coupled dielectric resonator which consists of a Whispering Gallery mode dielectric disk resonator and a ring resonator located eccentrically are analyzed. New analytical results of resonance characteristic based on the distributed coupling phenomena between the disk and the ring are obtained. The resonance performances have also been verified experimentally on X band model. We have found that Free Spectral Range of the coupled resonator is several times larger than that of the single disk resonator and the single ring resonator, respectively. As a result, the eccentric coupled resonator discussed in this paper can be used as a frequency selective element in millimeter wave integrated circuits.
