Abstract
A rectangular Dielectric Resonator Antenna (DRA) four element Multiple in Multiple Out (MIMO) is proposed for 5G application, and each element is supplied with slot-coupled microstrip feed. The entire construction has a dimension of 20 mm × 40 mm. Four Dielectric Resonators are mounted exactly above the slot. In order to improve the isolation, metamaterial is printed on top of the dielectric resonators, which move away the solidest coupling fields. As the metamaterial structure interacts with the electromagnetic fields, field distributions are disturbed which results in reduction of coupled fields. Since the metamaterials are printed on top of the dielectric resonator, the proposed antenna structure has simplest and compact design. The proposed structure is operating with an impedance bandwidth of 2.23 GHz with operating range from 26.71 GHz to 28.91 GHz, which covers the 28 GHz (27.5 GHz-28.35 GHz) band allotted by Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for 5G application. With all four-port excitation, the proposed structure shows a broadside radiation pattern with gain above 7 dBi in the entire operating bands. The Envelope Correlation Coefficient (ECC) for operating bands is within the target value. They are designed and fabricated to validate the proposed antenna. The simulated and measured values are nearly equal, which means that the proposed MIMO DRA is the right choice for mm-Wave 5G implementation.
