Abstract:
In this paper, a novel circularly-polarized (CP) patch antenna using organic magnetic substrate is proposed. This patch antenna works at 1.575 GHz frequency band which is for the global positioning system (GPS) application. The organic magnetic material is used to realize the miniaturization of antenna. To improve gain and axial ratio bandwidth of the antenna, fractal Hi-impedance surface electro-magnetic band gap (EBG) structures was used. The proposed antenna has been fabricated and measured. The simulation results for operating frequency band are shown to have good agreement with measurements.
