Abstract: Highly compact metamaterial devices are demonstrated by combining the composite right-left handed transmission line approach with a multilayer surface micromachined fabrication processusing SU8 as a dielectric layer. Multiband microwave metamaterial applications for ISM frequencies of 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz are implemented The use of microfabrication techniques eliminates the necessity of using surface mounting device (SMD) based lumped components and makes the CRLH structures compatible and integrable with CMOS/MEMS processes while allowing batch fabrication of multiple devices.
