Abstract

A left-handed transmission line with regularly spaced Schottky varactors is experimentally characterized. Due to dispersion, an envelop pulse on the line experiences a great distortion. By measuring the test line, we successfully observed that this distortion is compensated for by the nonlinear effects of Schottky varactors. This article describes the experimental observations, together with fundamental properties and numerical performance prospects of the line.
