A new circularly polarized patch antenna is proposed with an integrated lens in the substrate. The role of the lens position is numerically investigated for a given lens model and some complementary parametric studies are led. Either right handed- or left handed-circular polarization can be achieved. An experimental setup is developed and presented.
