Paper Abstract

Novel design of single-feed circular microstrip antenna for polarization diversity is proposed. It is demonstrated that by incorporating two orthogonal slots of equal lengths in the circular patch and utilizing two PIN diodes to switch the slots on or off, right hand circular polarization (RHCP) or left hand circular polarization (LHCP) can be achieved using the same feeding probe. The antenna design and results of the CP microstrip antenna obtained by applying this design are presented and discussed.
