Abstract:
A two port multi-input-multi-output (MIMO) dielectric resonator (DR) antenna (DRA) is proposed with circularly polarized radiation. The antenna geometry allows to find circular polarization and improved impedance bandwidth by reducing the separation between the DR elements. The isolation between the ports of the antenna remains more than 15 dB in the operating passband even after reducing the separation between the radiating elements. The antenna provides the 10-dB impedance and 3-dB axial ratio bandwidth of 34.85% and 4.55%, respectively. The MIMO performance of the proposed antenna is confirmed by calculating the parameters like envelop correlation coefficient, diversity gain, mean effective gain, channel capacity loss, and the total active reflection coefficient. The proposed antenna can be utilized for C-band applications.
