A compact open-loop resonator bandpass filter is presented to suppress the spurious passband using compensated compact microstrip resonant cell (C-CMRC) feeding structure. Based on the inherently compact and stopband characteristics of the C-CMRC feeding, the proposed filters shows a better spurious rejection performance than the only open-loop resonator filter. The suppression is -57.4 dB, -49.5 dB, and -43.9 dB at the 2nd, 3rd and 4th harmonic signal separately. All the performance of proposed filters have been verified by the measured results.
