axial ratio

[′ak·sē·əl ′rā·shō]
(crystallography)
The ratio obtained by comparing the length of a crystallographic axis with one of the lateral axes taken as unity.
(electronics)
The ratio of the major axis to the minor axis of the polarization ellipse of a waveguide. Also known as ellipticity.

The antennas proposed in this study have two different versions, where the first one possesses better omnidirectionality and axial ratio performances but narrow frequency bandwidth, and the second one has wider bandwidth but lower omnidirectional and axial ratio performances.
The antenna axial ratio in the most cases is less than 3dB, but precisely because of the higher requirements of Omni-directional, in the high-frequency pattern the axial ratio appears between 4-5 dB additionally, this antenna's back coaxial impedance matching SMA connectors take a longer length, increasing the size of the antenna.

In fact, abandoning the constraint on the inhibition of surface waves [8], the proposed antenna can easily obtain with the characteristics of a 3 dB axial ratio at lower elevation and a radiation pattern roll-off from zenith to horizon higher than 10 dB.
These wafer-thin galaxies have axial ratios ranging from 9:1 to 20:1 and consist of gasrich late-type spirals (Sc, Sd, or Sm) that lack a discernible bulge or organized dust lane.

If the axial ratio is less than 3 dB over any frequency band, then the antennas are said to be circularly polarized in that frequency band.
