A high temperature superconductor (HTS) filter is designed and measured at 1.93 GHz, using microstrip half-wavelength spiral resonators. Resonant and coupling characteristics of miniaturized microstrip spiral resonators are investigated first. Then a 4-pole Chebyshev bandpass filter with a very narrow passband (4.1 MHz) is designed and realized using microstrip spiral resonators. The filter is fabricated using HTS YBCO films deposited on a LaAlO3 substrate. The measured frequency response of the filter agrees reasonably with the specifications, and shows that the filter owns excellent property of spurious resonance rejection over a wide frequency range.
