Abstract

An E-shaped printed monopole antenna with loaded resonant elements suitable for penta-band multi-input multi-output (MIMO) application is proposed. The simple E-shaped monopole antenna results in a single resonance, and by loading the vertical arm of the antenna with narrow slots and stubs, a multi-band antenna can be obtained. The slots so placed on the antenna create L-shaped resonance paths which are multiples of λg/4, and stubs resonate at λg/4. The antenna is designed for operation over the UMTS, WiMAX and WLAN frequencies 2.1, 2.5, 3.5, 5.2, 5.8 GHz. A two element array of such antennas with close spacing of λg/15 is suitable for MIMO application. The array has low mutual coupling, low envelope correlation, high efficiency and good radiation patterns over all five frequency bands. Simulation and measurement results are compared and discussed.
