Abstract:

In this project, mode matching was used to calculate the propagation constant and the characteristic impedance of a coplanar coupled microstrip line. The Striplines are considered to be perfect electric conductors of negligible thickness, and are separated from the ground plane by three layers of dielectric material. The layer with the higher dielectric constant is sandwiched between two layers of lower dielectric constants, such that the field is confined to this middle layer, which is called the conducting layer of the microstrip line. By confining the field to this layer, losses at the metal conductor are minimized.
