In this paper, we report the design, fabrication and measurement of a circular polarization converter based on an in-linked loop-antenna frequency selective surface. The building unit cell is the in-linked loop-antenna module, which consists of same front and back planar loop antennas in-linked by a pair of through-via holes passing through a sandwiched perforated metal ground plane. The proposed device can achieve transmission polarization conversions from right- or left-handed circularly polarized waves to left- or right-handed ones, respectively, or vice versa. Simulation and experimental results show that it has relative conversion ratio of near unity at resonant frequency and very low Joule insertion loss in the operating frequency band. The proposed circular polarization converter may be applied to wireless systems where circular polarization diversity is needed.
