This antenna is used in applications where polarization purity is very important. The notched circular patch and other circularly polarized antennas tend to suffer from high cross-polarization levels, especially away from resonance and off broadside. This antenna improves the axial ratio properties of the notched patch by putting 4 of these elements into a sequentially rotated array. Each element is physically rotated with respect to the others and fed with a pin and an appropriate phase delay.

This graph shows a comparison of the axial ratio purity (broadside versus frequency), between this antenna (blue line) and the single notched element (red line) This graph shows a comparison of the axial ratio purity (broadside versus frequency), between this antenna (blue line) and the single notched element (red line)
