In this paper, a compact, wide fractional bandwidth bandpass filter using a new open slot split ring resonator (OSSRR) defected ground structure and compact microstrip resonating cell (CMRC) is presented. OSSRR is the modified and dual version of the open split ring resonator (OSRR). The band pass filter (BPF) is constructed by cascading lowpass and highpass sections designed using CMRCs and OSSRR respectively. The designed BPF has wide fractional bandwidth of 74%, sharp passband to stopband
