In this work, based on the use of the concept of spoof surface plasmon polaritons (spoof SPPs), we propose a novel kind of microstrips to suppress the interference between bended parallel microstrips. This novel structure is implemented by introducing subwavelength periodic structures onto the sides of a conventional microstrip. We numerically analyze the transmission characteristics of such new microstrips. We also measure the suppression arising from crosstalk between the bended corrugated microstrip and the conventional microstrip in both frequency and time domains. Experimental results show that such transmission line structure has superb interference restraining properties. Additionally, transmission properties have been investigated using circuit model. It is found that the coupling effect between the corrugated microstrip and the conventional microstrip can be efficiently suppressed in high speed digital signal transmission application.
