Short wire pairs are simple metamaterial structures. This structure includes a dielectric substrate with metal strips on both sides, of which the electric and magnetic resonant frequencies can be controlled by adjusting the length of the metallic wires. However, to vary the magnetic resonant frequency requires a change in the length of the strip and another patterned photomask. In this investigation, a simple method is introduced that requires only one patterned photomask by shifting the position of faced wire pairs up and down.
