The objective of the effort is to design a high gain circular polarization antenna using metamaterial slabs for satellite communication.
Mordern satellite communication systems often demand low-profile, wide bandwidth, high gain and circular polarization antennas. Traditionally, a reflector antenna, a horn antenna, and a microstrip array antenna are widely used to achieve high gain circular polarization. Recently, a metamaterial approach has been emerged as a promising method for a high gain antenna. However, a high gain circular polarization antenna using metamaterial remains as a big challenge.
