Abstract

A novel dual-band circularly-polarized slot antenna fed by a coplanar waveguide (CPW) is presented for digital multimedia broadcasting (2.6 GHz) and Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (3.5 GHz) application. The circular polarization in the lower band is achieved by the slots loaded in two opposite corners, and corner truncation of the square slot can offer a current path for the upper band. Experimental results show that the measured impedance bandwidths (VSWR ≤ 2) are 18.5% for the lower band and 19.1% for the upper band, and the measured 3 dB axial-ratio bandwidths are 22.3% and 18.3%, with respect to 2.6 GHz and 3.5 GHz, respectively.
