This paper studies the polarization of the main beam radiated from an infinite array of rectangular waveguides, and in particular, illustrates the matching procedure for the design of a circularly polarized array. It is demonstrated that the use of resonant irises at the waveguide openings together with a conventional matching junction inside the waveguides can improve both the power and the axial ratio of the main beam in a circularly polarized array. In general, a good matching design is the one which gives a proper compromise between the power and the polarization, and is not necessarily the one minimizing the reflection.
