This letter proposes a new design method for a bandstop filter with two stopbands. Contrary to a conventional method, the presented method allows for achieving two stopbands without increasing the number of the couplings between resonators and the transmission line connecting the input and output ports. In addition, a filter designed using the presented method can not only have different center frequencies but also have different bandwidths by adjusting the resonant frequencies of the resonators. For verification of the proposed approach a dual-stopband filter using four tunable substrate-integrated waveguide resonators has been designed and measured.
