A small sized, X-band, CPW-fed tulip-loop antenna is described. The antenna has an impedance bandwidth for a VSWR = 2 of 83%, stretching between 6 GHz and 14.5 GHz. Radiation patterns show stable co-polar and low cross-polar characteristics within the specified bandwidth. The small size of the radiator makes it suitable for being used in linear array applications.
