A Circularly Polarized Antenna for Dual Band Operation at 2.45 GHz and 5.10 GHz
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 74, 1-8, 2017
Abstract
This paper describes the design and experimental characterization of a circular polarized printed antenna for dual-band WiFi operation at 2.45 GHz and 5.10 GHz. The patch design is based on a combination of slits loading and gap-coupling applied to a disc patch in order to enhance the radiation performances in terms of polarization purity and bandwidth at the two operation frequencies. Experimental validations confirm a maximum gain around 6.0 dB for both 2.45 and 5.10 GHz, as well as an axial ratio as low as 0.5 dB and a return loss exceeding 15 dB on the operating frequencies. These characteristics are suitable for operationing in IEEE802.11x networks.
