Abstract

A simple slot coupled dual-band circularly polarized (CP) rectangular dielectric resonator antenna (DRA) is presented. The TE111 and TE113 modes of the rectangular DRA are excited by a modified annular slot. Working principle of the proposed antenna is explained in this paper. Design guideline of the proposed antenna is also devised based on the parameter study. The simple feeding and radiating structures of the proposed antenna make it easy to be designed and fabricated. A prototype antenna was designed, fabricated and measured. The simulated and measured results confirm the dual-band CP performance of the proposed antenna.
