Abstract

In this paper, a novel dual-frequency circularly polarized (CP) antenna applied to BDS system is presented. CP radiation is achieved by etching slotted circular patches of complementary open-loop resonators, which are excited by a feeding network consisting of a double-layer power divider. The circular patch is miniaturized by a complementary split-ring resonator (CSRR) etched on the patch. The overall dimension of the antenna is only 0.32λ0×0.32λ0×0.0104λ0, where λ0 is the corresponding free space wavelength at 1.268 GHz. The proposed antenna has 50 MHz (1.25-1.30 GHz) and 60 MHz (1.53-1.59 GHz) impedance bandwidth and 20 MHz (1.25-1.27 GHz) and 20 MHz (1.55-1.57 GHz) axial ratio bandwidth, respectively. The antenna profile is low, which is easy to install. Because of these performance indexes, the antenna has superior practicability in BDS system.
