© 2014 IEEE. Circularly polarized crossed dipole antennas are presented in this paper. A compact crossed dipole is realized with the use of a meander line and a barbed end in each dipole arm. A vacant-quarter printed ring is used as a 90° phase delay line to achieve circularly polarized radiation. For multi-band applications, each dipole arm is divided into multi-branches with different lengths to obtain multiple resonances. These radiators can be equipped with different reflectors, such as a finite planar metallic conductor, a cavity-backed metallic conductor, and a finite artificial magnetic conductor to obtain the desired antenna radiation characteristics. These antennas are quite practical for many wireless communication systems, such as satellite communications, global positioning systems, wireless local area networks, and radio-frequency identification devices.
