Circularly Polarized Antennas: Design and Measurement techniques
Circular polarization is an attractive polarization for many types of wireless telecommunications, such as satellite communication, RFID, etc. There are always strict requirements for circularly polarized (CP) antennas, such as broadband, small size, slim shape of designs, low cross-polarization in a wide radiation range of azimuth, etc. Also, designing CP antennas with such challenging performances are attractive for antenna researchers and designers. In this workshop, some design techniques for such applications and requirements are organized. In addition to this, some measurement techniques for essential parameters in circularly polarized antennas, such as axial ratio, gain measurement, will be summarized. In this opportunity, we would like to think of antennas with a point of view of polarization.
