Abstract:
Circularly polarized superquadric dielectric resonator antenna is investigated. A single coaxial probe is used to excite circularly polarized patterns. Finite element method is used to analyze the problem. Different aspect ratios of the superquadric dielectric resonator cross section for each squareness parameter for circular polarization are calculated.
