Abstract

Microstrip patch antennas being popular because of light weight, low volume, thin profile configuration which can be made conformal. Wireless communication systems applications circular polarization antenna is placing vital role. In this study we introduce a new technique to produce circular polarization. Hybrid coupler is directly connected to microstrip antenna to get circular polarization. Also gain is further increased by introducing antenna array technique. Each square in array having length of 4.6mm patch is having thickness of 0.381mm and the dielectric material used FR4. The designed antenna having high gain of 6.26dB and directivity of 5.11dB at the resonant frequency of 3.7GHz. Simulation results shows that the designed antenna characteristic is suitable for Wi-Fi applications.
