Abstract

In this paper, a cross-slot-coupled dual-band circularly polarized (CP) hybrid dielectric resonator antenna (DRA) is presented. The design concept is based on using a cross-slot as both a feeding structure of the DRA and an effective radiator. Full wave simulation is used to verify the proposed design concept in this paper. A prototype antenna is designed, fabricated, and measured. Good agreement is obtained between the simulated and measured results.
