The paper reports a compact and high performance dual-band bandpass filter (BPF) using two types of dual-mode resonators. The dual mode cross shaped resonator and the three dual mode ring resonators in the designed dual-band BPF are excited to control the first and second passband, respectively. It is shown that the designed and fabricated dual-band BPF has narrow bandwidths and very sharp attenuation rate due to the existence of the transmission zeros. The frequency response of the designed dual-band BPF shows good agreement between the simulations and experiments.
