Abstract:
A new design for circularly polarized square slot antenna (CPSSA) is presented. The circular polarization operation in the proposed single-layer antenna is created through two equal sized crooked T-shape and an F-shape strips located on the patch. Compared to most of the previously reported CPSSA structures, the impedance bandwidth and the axial ratio bandwidth of the antenna are increased and also the size of the antenna becomes smaller. The presented CPSSA design has the compact dimensions of 40 x 40 x 0.8 mm3, total impedance matching bandwidth of 8.04 GHz and exhibiting a 28.03% (4.6-6.1 GHz) 3 dB axial ratio bandwidth. A prototype of the antenna is fabricated and tested, and a great agreement with simulated results is obtained.
