Abstract This paper deals with an efficient optimization design method of a compact ultra wideband (UWB) filter which can improve the characteristics of the filter. The Evolution Strategy (ES) algorithm is adopted for the optimization and modified to suppress the ripple by inserting an additional step to the ES scheme. The algorithm has the ability to control the ripple of an insertion loss in a passband as a modified approach. During the modified ES, a structure of initial shape is changed a lot, while includes the stepped impedance (SI) and the composite right/left handed transmission line (CRLH-TL). And an optimized filter satisfies the UWB specifications on the stopband and passband with an acceptable insertion loss. The filter achieves a much developed shape, the size of 15 x 14mm, the 3dB bandwidth from 2.7 to 10.8GHz, the flat insertion-loss less than 1dB, the wide stopband with 12~20GHz, and an acceptable return loss.
