Abstract

In this paper, a circularly polarized slot-patch antenna for nanosatellite is presented. The novel design of the circularly polarized wave conducted by two asymmetrical rectangular-truncation techniques implemented on a circularly-slotted-patch on the front side and a deformed-shifted-feedline on the back side of the substrate. The antenna is printed on substrates with the dielectric constant of 2.17 and thickness of 1.6mm. The resonant frequency of the proposed antenna is set at 2.2 GHz with the minimum requirement of the axial ratio bandwidth (ARBW) of 300 MHz. The proposed antenna produces under 10 dB impedance bandwidth (IBW) 1.2765 GHz or equal to 58% (1.7235-3 GHz) with Left-Handed Circular Polarization (LHCP). The average antenna gain reaches 4.5 dBic at 2.2 GHz and the ARBW 327.5MHz or about 14.88% (2.0275-2.355 GHz). This paper includes the description and presentation of the completed discussion.
