In this paper interaction effects between Electromagnetic Bandgap (EBG) and an array of Split Ring resonators are analyzed in planar microstrip technology. Due to the equivalent negative e behavior of the EBG structure and the effective negative μ value when the SRR particles are operating in the vicinity of the quasi-static resonance frequency, a passband response is expected, as already seen in Left-Handed devices. Full wave simulations as well as measurement results from fabricated prototypes are presented, confirming initial predictions.
