Paper Abstract

The growing of RF/Microwave industry for satellite, mobile and terrestrial communications relies on new devices and design technologies. Metamaterials may offer a these capabilities, even so they were investigated in the research laboratory only. A power divider is an indispensable component commonly used to split an input signal into two output signals in RF, microwave or millimeter communication systems. A new power divider, composed of metamaterials is theoretically investigated. By adjusting the parameters, the power divider shows perfectly symmetric power division. The results are compared to Wilkinson splitter. The new power divider may be o good choice for aria where weight, size, low insertion loss, simplicity, and symmetric power division are critical design factors.
