Abstract

A novel and simple dual-band dual-sense circularly polarized (CP) metal-strip antenna is proposed. The antenna fed by a coplanar waveguide (CPW) with the advantages of uniplanar geometry and easier fabrication consists of a square slot and two split-ring elements. By appropriately introducing dual split-ring elements, the proposed dual-band CP design can easily be achieved. The two resonant frequencies are controlled by the size of the two split-ring elements. The proposed antenna prototype is fabricated and measured. Experimental results show that good CP radiation performances are obtained at both resonant frequencies. The proposed antenna has an impedance bandwidth (|S11|≤-10 dB) of 63.3% (2.0~3.9 GHz), and the dual band circular polarization with left hand circular polarization (LHCP) at 2.2 GHz and the right hand circular polarization (RHCP) at 3.8 GHz are obtained. Also, the 3-dB axial ratio bandwidths are about 220 and 190 MHz at the lower and upper band, respectively.
