  • In this paper, we compared the performance of the Right Handed Nonlinear Transmission Line (RH-NLTL) and Left Handed Nonlinear Transmission Line (LH-NLTL) as a harmonic generator. For a performance comparison, we fabricated both a RH-NLTL and a LH-NLTL harmonic generator whose operational bandwidth is from 0.5 GHz to 1.5 GHz. Under the each condition for the RH-NLTL and the LH-NLTL to maximize second harmonic, the output power of the second harmonic was 9.33 dB lower than the input power for the RH-NLTL and 12.67 dB lower than the input power for the LH-NLTL. Under the each condition for the RH-NLTL and the LH-NLTL to maximize third harmonic, the output power of the third harmonic was 13.33 dB lower than the input power for the RH-NLTL and 14.83dB lower than the input power for the LH-NLTL. Also, we have observed that, generatlly, a RH-NLTL is useful in generating various multiple harmonics and a LH-NLTL is useful in generating a specific order of harmonic by adjusting a proper DC vias, input frequency and input power. These tendencies could be a good guideline to use NLTLs as a frequency multiplier.
