The millimeter wave filter using two whispering-gallery mode dielectric disk resonators is presented in this paper. The coupling coefficients of dual disk resonators and the external Q values of the single resonator excited by a dielectric waveguide are investigated theoretically and experimentally. A 2-stage bandpass filter which is designed at the center frequency of 69.85 GHz with a bandwidth of 500 MHz shows a low-loss property of 1.8 dB insertion loss.
