Abstract
In this paper, a novel low-profile and dual-polarized antenna is presented. The antenna is composed of two pairs of rhombic dipoles excited by two orthogonal baluns. The broadband characteristic is achieved by introducing a metal ring under the rhombic dipole, and the radiation pattern beam widths are also improved. Based on the antenna unit, a 2-element antenna array is designed, fabricated, and measured. The relative bandwidth (standing wave less than 1.5) of the antenna is 45.1%, and the port isolation is greater than 27 dB, whereas the cross-polarization level maintains lower than 16 dB in the the frequency band of 2.4-3.8 GHz. The measured results are in good agreement with the simulated ones. This proposed antenna also has low profile characteristics, and the profile height is 20.8 mm, which is less than one quarter of the wavelength (24.2 mm) of the central frequency point (f = 3.1 GHz).
