Rectangularly bent slot antennas backed by a rectangular cavity for circular polarization are proposed. Characteristics of three types of cavity-backed rectangularly bent slot antennas for circular polarization-the single square loop slot, the two-element square loop slot, and the two-arm square spiral slot antenna-are analyzed numerically. The generalized network formulation based on the equivalence principle is given in terms of the method of moments. The magnetic currents on the thin rectangularly bent slots in the presence of the backing cavity are obtained and used to calculate the input impedance, radiation pattern, and axial ratio. Experimental results on the input impedance, radiation pattern, and axial ratio are in good agreement with calculated data
