Abstract

In this paper, a compact broadband CPW-fed circularly polarised elliptical-slot antenna with an inverted- L tuning stub is proposed. The antenna impedance is optimized for broadband operation from 1.62 GHz to 2.97 GHz. The measured CP bandwidth is 934 MHz (1.747-2.681 GHz), that covers common wireless communication bands GSM 1800, GSM 1900, 3G/LTE 2100, 3G/LTE 2300, 4G/LTE 2500, and 2.4GHz Wi-Fi bands. This makes the designed antenna an appropriate candidate for ambient RF energy harvesting purposes.
