Abstract

A triple band notch MIMO/Diversity antenna using Inductance Boosted Compact Electromagnetic Band Gap (IB-CEBG) cells is presented in this paper. For obtaining compactness in the conventional EBG cell, spiral shaped defects are introduced. The proposed antenna obtains triple band notches in WiMAX (3.3-3.6 GHz), WLAN (5-6 GHz), and the X-band satellite communication (7.2-8.4 GHz) bands. IB-CEBG cells exhibits miniaturization of approximately 46% for WiMAX band, 50% for WLAN band and 48% for X-band Satellite communication band, compared to conventional EBG cells. To enhance the isolation among all four compact UWB monopoles, rectangular slots in the ground plane and parasitic decoupling arrangement are utilised. Further, a stepped structure with an angular separation of 90˚ is incorporated with individual monopoles to reduce mutual coupling effects. Stepped structure also helps in the better impedance matching by incrementing the path length. The results show that the magnitude of transmission coefficient is greater than 15 dB in between the ports of proposed antenna elements. Envelope Correlation Coefficient is less than 0.5, which lies in tolerable limits for Ultra-Wide band (UWB) frequency range. It has been noticed that notched frequency is dependent on IB-CEBG cell parameters. The proposed antenna is fabricated using an FR-4 substrate with overall dimensions of 58 x 90 x 1.6 mm3.
