Abstract

This paper presents a new technology to realize a millimeter wave antenna with circular polarization. The antenna has a complex structure which consists of several dielectric slabs to achieve wideband, high-gain performance. Thank to the 3D printing technologies, the complex antenna can be easily fabricated with low cost. The proposed antenna has a wide impedance bandwidth of 50% from 45 to 75 GHz for the VSWR ≤ 2, and yields an overlapped axial ratio bandwidth of 37% from 46 to 67 GHz for the axial ratio ≤ 3 dB. The maximum gain of the antenna reaches to 15 dBic. The proposed work is simple in design, easy for fabrication, and with noticeable electrical characteristics.
