Abstract : A corner fed electric microstrip dipole antenna consisting of a thin electrically conducting, square shaped radiating element formed on one surface of a dielectric substrate, the ground plane being on the opposite surface. The feed point is located at one corner of the antenna element and the input impedance is matched with a matching microstrip transmission feed line connected to the corner of the antenna. The sides of the radiating element are all equal. The length of the element determines the resonant frequency along the Y axis and the width determines the resonant frequency along the Z axis. This antenna is capable of generating elliptical and circular polarized radiation when reactively loaded using a single element and single feed point. (Author)
