A simple, cheap realisation of a lossless (positive or negative) inductor is given, using three operational amplifiers in identical configurations, one grounded capacitor and four equal resistors. Experimental measurements on two filter sections confirm the theory. The losslessness is shown to depend on only two of the resistors being matched.
