The possibility to use CRLH (Composite Right/Left-Handed) cells to realize both distributed wide-band filters for linear signal processing and non-linear devices like frequency doublers is investigated analytically and numerically. Full-wave electromagnetic simulations are performed for the filtering structure by means of a commercial software package and confirm the validity of the analytic results. Numerical results for CRLH NLTL (Non-Linear Transmission Line) obtained by using the Microwave Office are discussed, providing design considerations about the synthesis of such a component.
