Compact, low-profile metasurface-based wideband and wide dual-band circularly polarized (CP) dielectric resonator antennas (DRAs) are presented in this paper. The rectangular-shaped DRs are loaded over two different types of strategic 7 × 7 metasurface unit cells including a "+" shape metasurface for single-band and square-slotted shape metasurface for dual-band performance. The DRs are fed diagonally with a single perturbed probe feed which is placed at an appropriate angle of 29°. Thus, the hybrid design combination of metasurface unit cells together with the angle of feed location from the center of DRs generates wideband CP radiation with enhanced 3-dB Axial Ratio (AR) and wide impedance matching bandwidths. Proposed antennas are successfully implemented and fabricated prototypes are measured demonstrating significant performance enhancement.
