The second harmonic generation along the CRLH (Composite Right/Left-Handed) NLTLs (Non-Linear Transmission Lines) is analytically and numerically analysed. The nonlinearity of the structure is introduced by series connected Schottky-varactor diodes. The results show the possibility to use CRLH NLTL as broadband frequency doubler having high efficiency conversion for low number of diodes.
