Design of Wideband Planar Linear-Circular Polarization Converter with Centrosymmetric Dual-Loop Elements
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 74, 83-92, 2018
Abstract
A wideband planar linear-circular polarization converter comprised of periodic centrosymmetric dual-loop unit cells with wideband property is presented in this letter. Full wave simulation and parameter study are carried out to demonstrate the basic working principle of the converter. Also, the performances of the device under oblique and deflected incidence situations are considered and discussed. A prototype is manufactured and tested. The measured results show that its working band covers from 19.3 GHz to 31.8 GHz with less than 3 dB axial ratio, which agree well with the simulated ones and thus validate the design concept.
