The design, analysis, fabrication and measurement of a new bulk metamaterial is reported in this paper. The structure of the new medium is made up of lefthanded parallel strips. The series capacitors are realized by short circuited parallel strip stubs, and the conducting shunt pins represent parallel inductors. This metamaterial allows the propagation of a left-handed wave in the frequency band from 4.75 to 5.65 GHz, much wider than the frequency band achievable by split-ring resonators. The simple equivalent
circuit of the metamaterial is derived. Additional modification of the media structure is proposed.
