Summary: 
This investigation proposes a modified equivalent circuit of single complementary split-ring resonator (CSRR) in planar transmission media and a dual-mode ring bandpass filter (BPF) that uses periodic CSRRs to suppress the spurious response. The proposed modified equivalent circuit consists of lumped elements that can be easily extracted from the measured S parameters. The proposed dual-mode ring BPF has exhibits a wide stopband characteristic owing to the bandgap resonant characteristic of CSRRs in the harmonic frequency of the dual-mode ring BPF. Good agreement with EM simulation and measurement is demonstrated.
