A novel flexible single-layered and single-sided linear to-circular polarizer is proposed in this work. The proposed polarizer is designed for a deployable format for application in a 3U Cube Satellites. It features a near-zero 3 dBAR, with a size of 0.22 λ₀×0.27λ₀×0.03λ₀ and a 3dB AR fractional bandwidth of 34.39 %, starting from 1.95 GHz to 2.76 GHz. It performs with a conversion efficiency bandwidth covering 90% of 43.47 %, starting from 1.8 GHz to 2.8 GHz. This indicates the polarizer’s wideband CP performance, with a pure CP centered at 2.41 GHz.
