In this paper a balanced NL CRLH TL (Non-Linear Composite Right/Left-Handed Transmission Line) is designed and then analysed for applications of frequency doublers and short pulse generation. The circuit is an array of cascaded cells, each one consisting of series connected reverse biased Schottky-varactor diodes working as nonlinear capacitors and parallel connected open-ended transmission line working as parallel resonator.
