The present invention provides multi-resonator cavity filters in which one or more patch elements are introduced into the coupling apertures between resonators, reducing the strength of the electric field in the aperture gap while maintaining the coupling strength from resonator to resonator. This reduced field strength reduces the sensitivity of the resonators to gap-thickness variations, and allows use of the filter in high-power applications.

The present invention relates to a multi-mode filter comprising a carrier on which is mounted a dielectric resonator having a covering of an electrically conductive material in which there is provided an aperture and a coupling structure for coupling input signals to the dielectric resonator or for extracting filtered output signals from the dielectric resonator. The carrier is provided with an enclosing formation of electrically conductive material, which enclosing formation is electrically coupled to the electrically conductive covering of the dielectric resonator, such that the covering and the enclosing formation together form an electrically conductive enclosure for the dielectric resonator. The enclosure formed from the covering of the dielectric resonator and the enclosing formation increases the isolation of the filter and reduces leakage. The filter of the present invention is particularly suitable for use in cascaded resonator filter arrangements, and in duplex/diplex filters.


A multi-mode cavity filter, including two dielectric resonator bodies, the first incorporating a piece of dielectric material having a shape to support a first resonant mode and a second substantially degenerate resonant mode; the second also including a piece of dielectric material, the dielectric properties, shape and dimensions of which may differ from those of the first dielectric resonator body; the second piece of dielectric material having a shape to support at least a first resonant mode; a layer of conductive material in contact with and covering both of the dielectric resonator bodies; one aperture in the layer appearing at the interface of the first and second dielectric resonator bodies, for transferring signals, the aperture being arranged for directly coupling signals to the first and second resonant modes in parallel, and directly coupling signals from the first and second resonant modes in parallel.


A multi-mode filter including a resonator body including a piece of dielectric material, the resonator body being configured to support a first resonant mode and a second resonant mode, the resonator body having a covering of an electrically conductive material, wherein the covering is provided with a coupling aperture arrangement, the coupling aperture arrangement including a first coupling segment and a second coupling segment, wherein the first coupling segment is configured to couple a first magnetic field or a first electric field to the first resonant mode or the second resonant mode within the resonator body and the second coupling segment is configured to couple a second magnetic field or a second electric field to the first resonant mode or the second resonant mode within the resonator body.

A multi-mode cavity filter, including first and second dielectric resonator bodies, each incorporating a piece of dielectric material, a first piece shaped to support a first resonant mode and a second resonant mode that is substantially degenerate with the first mode, and the second piece shaped to support a third resonant mode and a fourth resonant mode that is substantially degenerate with the third mode, a layer of electrically conductive material in contact with and covering a surface of the first and a surface of the second dielectric resonator bodies, an aperture in the layer, wherein the aperture includes first and second portions, wherein the first portion transfers signals from the first or second resonant mode to the third or fourth resonant mode and the second portion transfers signals from the first or second resonant mode to the third or fourth resonant mode in parallel.
