The Defected Microstrip Structure (DMS) is employed to improve the performance of different planar passive circuits like rectangular patch antennas and Microstrip filters. As examples, the novel structure is introduced as a part of the passive device to reduce patch antenna size and as a tuning technique of this kind of elements. DMS is compared to a unit-cell Defected Ground Structure (DGS), observing some advantages concerning frequency response for narrow-band filtering applications.
