© 1963-2012 IEEE. A dual-linearly polarized, electrically small, low-profile, broadside radiating Huygens dipole antenna is presented, that is, an advanced combination of electric and magnetic near-field resonant parasitic elements. Its prototype was fabricated and tested. The measured results are in good agreement with their simulated values. At 1.515 GHz, the prototype is electrically small ( ka = 0.904 ) and low profile ( 0.0483\lambda -{0} ). It exhibits high port isolation and a large front-to-back ratio (FTBR). The isolation between its two ports is demonstrated to be over 25.8 dB within its -10 dB fractional impedance bandwidth, 0.46%. When port 1 (port 2) is excited, the peak realized gain is 2.03 dBi (2.15 dBi) strictly along the broadside direction with a 12.4 dB (12.1 dB) FTBR.
