© 2001-2012 IEEE. In this letter, a C-band compact wideband bandpass filter (BPF) with high selectivity and improved return loss (RL) is proposed. Two pairs of short-circuited stubs are employed on a transmission-line model to generate three transmission poles and two transmission zeros (TZs), where the odd-and even-mode analysis is used to analyze the resonant frequencies of the BPF. By applying the transversal signal-interference technique, two additional TZs can be generated in the upper and lower stopbands, respectively. The measured results show that the 3-dB fractional bandwidth is 62.8% at the center frequency of 5 GHz. The RL and the insertion loss within the passband are better than 22 and 0.6 dB, respectively. Moreover, the roll-off rate is up to 100 dB/GHz.
