Open resonators have been widely applied in dielectric sensing and laser cavity. In this letter, we designed and fabricated a novel open resonator using a metamaterial transmission line medium. The open-resonance effect which is generated by multiple negative reflections is demonstrated experimentally. It may open up a new avenue for designing open resonators based on metamaterials.
