This paper presents a novel dual-band comb-line filter using a pair of hybrid resonators. The resonator consists of a half-wavelength stripline resonator short-circuited at both ends and a quarter-wavelength resonator of coplanar waveguide that is nested in the half-wavelength resonator. Numerical calculations by an electromagnetic simulator clarify the characteristics of dual-frequency resonance of the hybrid resonator when the structural parameters are changed. The surface current density on the resonator is also investigated at the resonant frequencies. A typical model of the resonator is fabricated and its resonance frequency characteristics are measured.
