Abstract: This article presents a novel planar monopole antenna with circular polarization. The 3-dB axial ratio (AR) is achieved by: shifting a vertical monopole to the left edge of the substrate in conjunction with a laterally inverted L-shaped ground plane. When viewed from the top, the antenna resembles an uneven T-shaped structure rotated at 90 . Measurement results show that; a 3-dB AR bandwidth is achieved from 3.1 to 6.2 GHz (66.7% fractional bandwidth) and an S11 ≤ −10 dB bandwidth is realized from 2.5 to 6.5 GHz (88.9% fractional bandwidth). The proposed antenna is compact with an area of 20 mm2 , produces stable radiation patterns, and its simple to design and fabricate without using parasitic elements or introducing slots on the antenna.
