A miniaturized four-port polarization diversity ultra-wide band multiple input multiple output (MIMO) antenna is presented in this article.

Abstract

A miniaturized four-port polarization diversity ultra-wide band multiple input multiple output (MIMO) antenna is presented in this article. Different structures are combined and excited with the tapered transmission line to obtain a reduced symmetric layout with the orthogonal arrangement in compact size. An inverted-c-shape partial ground plane is used to decouple the antenna elements placed in close proximity which reduced the overall size and improved the matched impedance of the MIMO antenna. Further, impedance bandwidth is improved by etching the slots in the ground plane. The overall dimension of the proposed compact MIMO antenna is 40 × 40 × 1.524 mm3. The measured characteristics of a fabricated prototype on the FR4 laminate well matched with the simulated results. The antenna exhibits a quasi-omnidirectional radiation pattern on the H-plane throughout the operational bandwidth, with isolation greater than 16 dB, low envelope correlation, and gain variation. this antenna can efficiently be usedfor diversity applications and portable devices.
