A Compact Dielectric Resonator Based Dual Port Circularly Polarised MIMO Antenna for Wideband Applications

Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 107, 51-63, 2022
Abstract
In this communication, a compact Dielectric Resonator (DR) based multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) antenna is presented for wideband applications. The antenna consists of two modified kite-shaped monopoles where four DRs have been placed on the patch. Corners of four DRs have been etched to implement the orthogonal phase, which leads to circular polarization characteristics. Implementation of DRs also helps in bandwidth enhancement purpose. Two L-shaped parasitic strips along with a Y-shaped stub have been used in the ground plane so as to obtain high isolation, which leads to a decrease of mutual coupling between the antenna elements. The proposed antenna achieves a wide impedance bandwidth of 7.1-22 GHz (106%) along with low mutual coupling of less than -15 dB within the entire frequency range as well as circular polarization characteristics, which covers the frequency range (-3 dB) of 7.1-7.9 GHz (10.6%). Thus the antenna can be considered as a potential candidate for modern wireless communication systems.
