  • In this paper we propose the use of Composite Right/Left Hand (CRLH) and Extended Composite Right/Left Hand (ECRLH) transmission lines for the design of dual band high efficiency power amplifiers working in CE class. The harmonic
    termination can be synthesized using the meta-lines is particularly suitable for
    CE class amplifiers, which have a termination not as sensitive to the third
    harmonic as F class amplifier. This paper presents the design procedure and the
    design equations. The non-linear phase response of a CRLH and ECRLH transmission
    line has been utilized to design arbitrary dual-band amplifiers.
