Multi-Band Orthogonal Linear Polarization Discrimination Planar Array Antenna
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 34, 53-67, 2013
Abstract
In this paper, a novel planar array antenna for multi-band linear polarization discrimination is proposed. The proposed array antenna consists of 12 patch elements and a double-balanced multiplier. A slot-ring and four diodes used in the multiplier also act as an antenna and amplitude detector, respectively. Furthermore, slot lines which are parts of feeding circuits also act as slot antennas. The Both-sided MIC technology is effectively employed to realize the feeding circuit which eliminates the extra impedance matching circuit. The array antenna is realized in a very simple and compact structure as all the antenna elements, feeding circuit and the multiplier/amplitude detector are arranged on both sides of a substrate. The proposed array antenna can discriminate ±45° linear polarization in three frequency bands. The ability of the proposed array antenna to discriminate orthogonal linear polarization is successfully confirmed in C and X band by the experimental investigation.
