UWB-MIMO Antenna with Novel Stub Structure
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 19, 245-257, 2011
Abstract
A compact printed and planar Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) for Ultra Wideband (UWB) communications is presented. Two circular disc monopole antenna elements constitute the proposed UWB-MIMO antenna operating over the frequency band of 3.2-10.6 GHz. The isolation between the antenna ports has been enhanced to the value of more than 15 dB throughout the frequency band of interest. This enhancement is achieved by taking the advantage of an inverted-Y shaped stub that is being inserted on the ground plane of UWB-MIMO antenna. The insertion of the stub has also facilitated reduction of the size of the antenna, i.e., overall dimensions of the antenna are 40×68mm2. The proposed antenna is investigated both numerically and experimentally.
