A dual-polarization coplanar waveguide (CPW)-fed slot antenna is proposed in this letter. By exploiting the even and odd modes of a CPW structure, two orthogonal polarizations can be excited in a slot aperture by the same feeding CPW, which results in a compact dual-polarization antenna design with very good isolation between the ports. The -10-dB reflection coefficient bandwidths of two polarizations are 670 MHz (27.9%) for one polarization and 850 MHz (35.4%) for the other, and the isolation between the two ports in the WLAN band is better than -32.6 dB. The radiation pattern and efficiency of the proposed antenna are also measured, and radiation pattern data are compared with simulation results.
