A Dielectric Resonator Antenna operating in circular polarization is presented. The proposed antenna is formed by a uniaxial anisotropic dielectric and a ground plane. The optimization of the permittivity tensor and antenna dimensions is performed both theoretically and numerically using an Eigen mode analysis in Ansys HFSS. A good agreement is obtained for the resonant frequencies and quality factors of the different modes. The uniaxial anisotropic DRA radiates two degenerate orthogonal modes, TE111x and TE111y, with equal amplitudes and 90° phase difference in order to achieve circular polarization. An impedance bandwidth of 9.8% is accomplished and a broadside radiation pattern with left-hand circular polarization (LHCP) is achieved in simulation. Furthermore, an Axial Ratio (AR) of 0.06 dB at 2.45 GHz and a 3-dB AR bandwidth of 2.04% are obtained. The maximum simulated directivity is equal to 6.56 dBi.
