Abstract

In this paper, complementary split ring resonators (CSRRs) defected ground structure (DGS) is introduced to suppress surface waves and to reduce the mutual coupling between E-plane coupled two elements of a microstrip patch MIMO antenna array. The CSRRs-DGS is easily etched on the ground plane between the array elements. The CSRRs-based DGS acts as a bandstop filter between the array elements and operates in the same desired frequency band of the array at 9.2 GHz. Significant reduction of the electromagnetic (EM) mutual coupling is achieved between array elements with a reduced edge-to-edge spacing of 7.5 mm (0.22 λo). Experimental results show that more than 30 dB isolation between the array elements is obtained using an array of CSRR-based DGS. Moreover, the antenna array parameters are successfully optimized with a numerical experimentation technique using a 3D full-wave EM simulator. The design of the proposed array is fabricated and measured for verification purposes. The proposed design has been simulated and validated experimentally. Good agreement is found between the simulated and the measured data.
