Quadrifilar helix antennas have the unique attribute of producing a circularly polarized conical beam while maintaining a relatively slender and compact form factor.
The small mirror and beamsplitter should be free of dirt and scratches, but they need not be especially flat in the optical sense because the cross section of the conical beam is very small where it strikes these surfaces.
