Design of a Compact Wideband MIMO Antenna for Mobile Terminals
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 41, 163-174, 2013
Abstract
A new broadband multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) antenna with good isolation and compact size is proposed. The proposed antenna consists of two G-shaped elements in the upper layer and two inverted L protrude branches and a T slot etched in ground which is used to reduce the mutual coupling. This planar antenna has a bandwidth of 100% with |S11| ≤ -10 dB from 2.26 to 6.78 GHz. The value of isolation between the two antenna elements is more than 22.5 dB in the whole band. The experimental results verify the simulations.
