A Compact, Wideband, Dual Polarized CPW-Fed Asymmetric Slot Antenna for Wireless Systems
Keywords:asymmetric slot antenna, circular polarization, CPW feed, wideband antenna
Wideband, dual sense circularly polarized (CP), asymmetric circular slot fed by coplanar waveguide is proposed and designed. Dual polarizations are obtained by using a horizontal stub to the feed line and embedding the L-shaped strip onto the slotted ground plane. The simulated result of impedance bandwidth shows wideband performance is produced by four resonant modes. Some key parameters are studied to analyze the characteristics of the proposed antenna. The overall volume of the proposed antenna is 18 mm × 18 mm × 1.6 mm. The measured value of 10 dB impedance bandwidth is 112%at frequencies from 4.2 GHz to 14.9 GHz with voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) ≤ 2. The 3-dB axial ratio bandwidths are 39.3% for the lower band which senses right-hand circular polarization (RHCP) and 2.8% for the upper band which senses left-hand circular polarization (LHCP) relative to the center frequency of 6.1GHz and 14.1 GHz, respectively. The proposed structure gives a good radiation pattern with moderate gain.
