Microwave and Optical Technology Letters (Impact Factor: 0.57). 12/2010; 52(12):2717 - 2721. DOI: 10.1002/mop.25562


The dual-band circular slot antenna utilizing the embedded arc-shaped metallic strip for the circularly polarized (CP) and linearly polarized (LP) operations is presented in this letter. The experimental results show that the resonant frequency of low-band for CP mode is utilized the protruded arc-shaped metallic strip, which extends current route to make the fundamental resonant mode shifted to the lower frequency band. The high-band for LP mode, which has the similar current distribution to that of the fundamental mode of the conventional circular slot, is employed the first-higher order resonant mode of the circular slot. Two measured input impedance bandwidths of the proposed design are 23.2% and 18.8%, respectively, and the measured bandwidth of low-band with an axial ratio (AR) of less than 3.0 dB is 14.5%. The operating bands show the broadside radiation patterns with 1.7–2.7 dBic CP gain and the peak antenna gain of 3.6–4.3 dBi, respectively. © 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    ABSTRACT: A new form CPW-fed broadband circularly polarized square slot antenna (CPSSA) with three inverted-L-shape grounded strips around the corners of the slot is proposed and fabricated. In comparison to the previous CPSSA structures, the axial-ratio (AR) bandwidth of the antenna is increased, which is two times wider than the previous proposed design. By embedding the L-shape strip to the ground plane and using the vertical stub to the feed line, very good axial-ratio bandwidth is obtained. The measured impedance bandwidth and AR of the realized CPSS antenna with optimized parameters is from 2 to 7 GHz (3.5:1, 110%) for VSWR ≤ 2 and 2-5 GHz (2.5:1; 85%) for AR ≤ 3 dB respectively. Throughout this letter, the improvement process of the AR and S<sub>11</sub> properties is completely presented and discussed.

    ABSTRACT: This letter presents a new design for a circularly polarized square slot antenna (CPSSA). The proposed single-layer antenna composed of a square ground plane embedded with two unequal-size inverted-L strips around two opposite corners is capable of generating a resonant mode for exciting two orthogonal E vectors. In this model, compared to the previous CPSSA structures, the impedance bandwidth and the axial ratio bandwidth of antenna are increased, which is four times wider than the impedance bandwidth of previous similar designs. The designed CPSS antenna with size 60 × 60 × 0.8 mm<sup>3</sup> operates over the frequency band between 2.67 and 13 GHz (4.74:1, 132%) for VSWR <; 2, exhibiting a 32.2% (4.9-6.9 GHz, 1.5:1) circular polarization (CP) bandwidth. Throughout this letter, the improvement process of the axial ratio (AR) and S\ properties are presented and discussed in detail.
