In this paper, a reflectance-based "non linear interpolation method" is presented to model the measured or computed data, obtained from a "Passive one-port physical device" using mixed lumped and distributed elements. Mixed element model is constructed with cascade connection of series inductors [L], commensurate transmission lines or so called Unit Elements [UE] and shunt capacitors[C]. Basis of the new model rests on the numerical generation of the scattering parameters of the lossless two-port constructed with cascade connection of simple [L]-[UE]-[C] elements which describes a lossless 2-port in Darlington sense. The new modeling technique does not require direct optimization of the circuit elements of the selected topology. Rather, two-variable reflection coefficient is directly determined by means of a non linear but "convergence guaranteed" interpolation process to best fit the given data. A low-pass filter input reflection coefficient modeling example is included to exhibit the utilization of the proposed modeling method.
