© 2001-2012 IEEE. A miniaturized full-metal dual-band bandpass filter using a dual-mode circular spiral resonator (CSR) in a single metal cavity is proposed. Two spirals are combined together to form a dual-mode resonator, and the transmission zero (TZ) produced by the source-load coupling can separate the two modes and achieve the desired dual-band property. Then, a second-order dual-band filter is designed based on the dual-mode resonator, and each band can be individually synthesized, designed, and tuned to achieve the desired filtering performances. In addition, each band has TZs on both sides of the passband to achieve high selectivity. The size of the second-order dual-band filter is only 0.073\lambda _{0} \times 0.055\lambda _{0} \times 0.015\lambda _{0} calculated at the center frequency of the lower band. Finally, the filter is fabricated and measured, and a good agreement is achieved between the measurement and simulation.
