Abstract

In this paper, properties of three types of Circular Polarization Selective Surface (CPSS) cells including Pierrot, Morin, and Tilston, for using in dual circular polarization reflectarray antenna design are investigated. First they are designed for a center frequency about 10 GHz, and circular polarization properties including Reflection Loss, Transmission Loss, Reflected Axial Ratio, and Transmitted Axial Ratio are calculated and presented. Finally, reflection phase curves are presented, and the comparison between simulated properties is accomplished. Simulations show that Tilston cell is more optimum in dual circular polarization reflectarray antennasr
