Design of compact coupled-line couplers
The size of rat-race and branch-line couplers can be reduced by using periodic loading or artificial transmission lines. The objective of this work is to extend the idea of size reduction through periodic loading to coupled-line 90° hybrids. A procedure for the extraction of the characteristic parameters of a coupled-line 4-port from a single set of S-parameters is described. This method can be employed to design of coupled artificial transmission line couplers of arbitrary geometry. The procedure is illustrated through the design a broadside-coupled stripline hybrid, periodically loaded with stubs. Measured results for a prototype coupler confirm the validity of the theory.

Citation countsare sourced monthly fromand citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloadsdisplays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
