Four compact asymmetric-slit microstrip antennas are proposed and studied for circular polarization. By cutting asymmetrical slits in diagonal directions onto the square microstrip patches, the single coaxial-feed microstrip patch antennas are realized for circularly polarized radiation with compact antenna size. The performances of the proposed antennas with several asymmetric-slit shapes onto the patch radiators are compared. The measured 10-dB return loss and 3-dB axial-ratio bandwidths of the antenna prototype are around 2.5% and 0.5%, respectively. The proposed asymmetric-slit configurations are useful for compact circularly polarized microstrip patch antennas and array design.
