This article presents an application of a grounded substrate-based metasurface for hosting dielectric resonators (DRs), enabling a wide dual-band circularly polarized (CP) operation. The antenna structure comprises centrally positioned rectangular DRs, one above the other, along with a 7 × 7 square-slotted metasurface. The metasurface and DRs are hosted above a grounded substrate, which is fed through a single coaxial feed placed at a specific angle, employing a modified upper probe of the coaxial feed. The proposed hybrid technique utilizes the combined benefits of the feed angle and a well-matched metasurface, resulting in performance improvement. Notably, a measured impedance bandwidth of 88.1% for |S11| is achieved within the frequency range of 4.0 GHz to 10.3 GHz. Furthermore, the antenna design exhibits two overlapping measured 3-dB axial ratio (AR) bandwidths: 23.62% from 4.25 GHz to 5.4 GHz and 5.12% from 7.6 GHz to 8 GHz. The peak gain of the antenna is measured at 8.4 dBic. Consequently, this innovative single-feed antenna design, characterized by its compact profile, holds significant potential for realizing multi-band operations. Furthermore, the developed antenna is well-suited for deployment in indoor radio links and INSAT applications.
