Abstract: A circularly polarized stacked patch microstrip antenna and a 2∈×∈2 subarray for circular polarization are proposed in this paper. The proposed design has the input impedance bandwidth and axial ratio bandwidth of about 10% and 4.7% respectively. Circular polarization is obtained with the help of slits cut in the patch. A size reduction of around 37% is also achieved with the help of the slits. A subarray based on sequentially rotated feeding technique for circular polarization is also presented in this paper. Array element was deigned using a high dielectric constant laminate for feed network. In addition to low boresight axial-ratio, the subarray has impedance and 3-dB axial-ratio bandwidths of 12% and 8% respectively. © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2007.
