In order to develop a tunable resonator which can be easily operated by DC bias and applied for microwave tunable filters and devices using ferroelectric thin or thick films, the non conductor backed-and conductor backed- coplanar stripline resonators have been designed and analyzed. They have been designed to be operated at 25 GHz which involve coplanar stripline input and output ports. The resonators have been simulated and analyzed using Ansoft HFSS. The research has been focused on the Quality factor of the coplanar stripline resonator. The conductor Q, box Q, and radiation Q of the resonators have been analyzed and calculated according to the substrate thickness & conductor width of the resonators. From these parameters, the loss factors of the coplanar stripline resonator have been investigated. The conducting Q of the coplanar stripline resonator has no relation with the thickness of dielectric substrate and increases as the conductor width increases. The box Q has no much relation with the thickness of substrate and the conductor width, which is above 2000. The radiation loss increases as the thickness of substrate and the conductor width increase. To decrease the radiation loss of the coplanar stripline resonator, a conductor backed coplanar stripline resonator has been proposed which has the unloaded Q of 170.
