T. M. Pholele and J. M. Chuma, “Effects of Combined Apertures on the Magnitudes of Coupling Coefficients of Combline Resonators,” IOP Conf. Ser.: Mater. Sci. Eng., Vol. 67, 2014. DOI: 10.1088/1757-899X/67/1/012005
The effects of differently positioned and combined apertures on the magnitudes of electric coupling coefficients of two identical combline resonators are analysed. Coupling coefficient, k-vertical symmetry provides greater negative coupling for apertures less than 50 % opening on the common wall. Combined apertures do not enhance electric coupling. The Γ aperture annihilates electric coupling, whereas T shaped aperture provides reduced negative coupling coefficients compared to single apertures that make up the combination.
