Abstract

In recent years, circular polarized antennas become more important in wireless communication systems because of the ability of radiating circular polarized wave. In this paper, the design of single-feed square-aperture antenna with and without reflector towards the circular polarized antenna performance is presented. The antenna made of square ground plane, square-aperture and a probing strip feed by using microstrip transmission line. The design has achieved a target axial ratio, which is less than 3 dB at frequency range of 4 GHz to 6.5 GHz. When a square ground plane reflector is integrated on the CP antenna for the unidirectional pattern, the presented antenna enhanced gain about 8 dB.
