New Defected Ground Structures (DGSs) to reduce cross-polarized radiation of circular microstrip antennas
Published in -
In this paper, suppression of cross-polarized (XP) radiation of a circular microstrip patch antenna (CMPA) employing two new geometries of defected ground structures (DGSs), is experimentally investigated. One of the antennas employs a circular ring shaped defect in the ground plane, located bit away from the edge of the patch. This structure provides an improvement of XP level by 5 to 7 dB compared to an identical patch with normal ground plane. The second structure incorporates two arc-shaped DGSs in the H-plane of the patch. This configuration improves the XP radiation by about 7 to 12 dB over and above a normal CMPA. For demonstration of the concept, a set of prototypes have been examined at C-band. The experimental results have been presented. ©2009 IEEE.
