In this paper, a compact triple-band coplanar waveguide (CPW)-fed patch antenna with dual-polarization characteristics for wireless applications is proposed. The antenna is composed of an F-shaped patch, a grounded-C strip, a rectangular strip, and a horizontal rectangular grounded slot. The first circular polarized band is obtained by the F-shaped feed-line, and the second is achieved by the left C-shaped strip, while the right rectangle strip is responsible for the lower linearly polarized band. By inserting a slot at the right of the square slot, a notched band centered at 5.5 GHz is achieved. Both simulated and experimental results show that the antenna can generate three separate impedance bandwidths to cover frequency bands of 2.4/5.2/5.8-GHz WLAN band and X band. And the antenna is circularly polarized in the 5.8 GHz and 10GHz band. Furthermore, the antenna structure is extremely simple and occupies small space. The proposed antenna has its applications in compact and portable devices operating at multiple frequency bands like cellular phones, Tablets, Wi-Fi devices, etc.
