Abstract: This paper proposes a metamaterial reflective surface (MRS) as a superstrate for a single-feed circularly polarized microstrip patch antenna (SFCP-MPA). It illustrates a simultaneous enhancement on antenna gain, impedance bandwidth (ZBW) and axial-ratio bandwidth (ARBW) by adding the MRS atop the SFCP-MPA. The MRS can enhance the ZBW and ARBW by 3.5 and 9.9 times, respectively, compared to the circularly polarized patch source. Moreover, the gain of the CP-MPA with the MRS is 7 dB higher than that of the conventional CP-MPA. The small spacing between the MRS and patch source is another merit in the present design, which is as low as λ/16, as it results in a low-profile antenna design that well suits modern wireless communications.
