The generalized perfectly matched layer (GPML) coupled with rotationally symmetric (RS)-FDTD method has been utilized to extract the S-parameters for several probe-coupled TM01 dielectric resonator (DR) filters to directly obtain the theoretical wide-band spurious performance. The computationally efficient (RS)-FDTD method has also been used to obtain accurate filter parameters for TE01 and TM01 dielectric resonators loaded in cylindrical cavities. The RS-FDTD method combined with digital filtering and the Matrix Pencil technique are used to analyze the resonant frequencies, inter-resonator coupling, and external Q values. When perturbation theory is used with RS-FDTD, accurate values of unloaded Q are obtained. (C) 2002 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
