A novel TE11 monoblock dual-mode dielectric resonator filter is presented in this paper. The proposed filter is made of a single piece of ceramic with silver plated external surfaces and metallic lids for hosting tuning elements. The dominant TE11 dual-mode is supported by H-shape dielectric resonator having 휺풓 =45. The resonator is ultra-compact in size and offers a maximized space utilization since no metallic housing is required. In addition, the proposed resonator offers a high unloaded quality factor, reasonably wide spurious window and lend itself to implement tunability. One Prototype filter operating at 1.96 GHz with 50-MHz bandwidth is designed.
