A semi-circle arc projection is introduced to miniaturize the patch in circular patch microstrip antennas. The idea has been inspired from the effectiveness of a cuboid ridge in size reduction of a rectangular patch microstrip antenna. A prototype of the proposed antenna together with a prototype of a conventional circular patch antenna have been fabricated and measured. The two antennas are compared and the results are presented and discussed. A parametric study is also carried out on the characteristics of the arc projection.
