In this paper, a dual-polarized antenna is developed with high isolation between its transmitting (TX) and receiving (RX) ports for in-band full-duplex (IBFD) applications. A square patch antenna with horizontal and vertical polarizations is adopted as the antenna element. A new self-interference cancellation (SIC) feed network is proposed to differentially feed the antenna and combine the horizontal/vertical polarizations into ±45° polarizations. By making use of the symmetry of the antenna configuration and differential feeding, the proposed network can cancel out the coupled and reflected signals, leading to high isolation between the TX and RX ports. A high isolation of 46 dB is realized within the working band from 3.31 to 4 GHz (18.5%) and the gain is above 7.5 dBi. In addition, across the operation band, the radiation patterns show a good stability with the frequency variation.
