This letter presents a new design for a circularly polarized square slot antenna (CPSSA). The proposed single-layer antenna composed of a square ground plane embedded with two unequal-size inverted-L strips around two opposite corners is capable of generating a resonant mode for exciting two orthogonal E vectors. In this model, compared to the previous CPSSA structures, the impedance bandwidth and the axial ratio bandwidth of antenna are increased, which is four times wider than the impedance bandwidth of previous similar designs. The designed CPSS antenna with size 60 × 60 × 0.8 mm3 operates over the frequency band between 2.67 and 13 GHz (4.74:1, 132%) for VSWR <; 2, exhibiting a 32.2% (4.9-6.9 GHz, 1.5:1) circular polarization (CP) bandwidth. Throughout this letter, the improvement process of the axial ratio (AR) and S\ properties are presented and discussed in detail.
