In this study, a compact 2 × 2 interlaced sequentially rotated dual-polarized dielectric-resonator antenna array is proposed for 5.8 GHz applications. The array is composed of a novel unit elements that are made of rectangular dielectric resonator (RDR) coupled to an eye slot for generating the orthogonal modes, and to acquire circular polarization (CP) radiation. For the purpose of miniaturization and achieving dual polarized resonance, the array is fed by two interlaced ports and each port excites two radiating elements. The first port feeds horizontal elements to obtain left hand circular polarization (LHCP). The second port feeds vertical elements to obtain right hand circular polarization (RHCP). A quarter-wave length transformer is employed to reduce the attenuation and consequently increase the array gain performance. The 35 × 35 mm2 () gains were 8.4 and 8.2 dBi for port 1 and port 2, respectively, with port isolations of −33.51 dB. The design achieves a voltage standing-wave ratio (VSWR) < −10 dB and an axial ratio (AR) ˂ − 3 dB bandwidth of 2.48% (5.766 to 5.911 GHz) for LHCP at port 1 and a VSWR < −10 dB and AR ˂ −3 dB bandwidth of 2.28% (5.788 to 5.922 GHz) for RHCP at port 2. The findings of the proposed design validate its use for ISM band applications.
