As shown in Figure 13, the corresponding LC circuit resonance frequency of the sensor can be resolved by taking [f.sub.1min] and [f.sub.2min] and coupling coefficient ([k.sub.12] = 0.5) into formulas (16a) and (16b).
The ESI unit measures the effects of eddy currents generated on the conductive object near the LC circuit and transforms it to position.
It means that the CRLH TL based on the basic LC circuit supports a forward wave in the RH effect area ([beta] > 0), where the structure works in the low-pass band, while a backward wave is in the LH effect area ([beta] < 0), where the structure operates on the high-pass band.
