Study of the Radiated Polarization of an Antenna Array with Circular Geometry

Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 24, 173-183, 2011
Abstract
This paper deals with an investigation on the polarization of an antenna array with a circular geometry. The theory shows that the polarization of a circular array exhibits a circular polarization independent of the antenna elements. Circular polarization is then achieved whatever the polarization of the elements of the array. Moreover, due to the circular geometry of the array, the entire far field pattern of the array can be obtained with the measurement or the simulation of only one antenna inside the array. The influence of the array radius on the polarization performances has been investigated. An antenna array has been built, and measurements have been performed in order to corroborate the theoretical results.
