Abstract

A compact Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) antenna of size 41×30×0.8 mm3 is proposed in this paper for Ultra-Wideband (UWB) application with high isolation. The proposed UWB-MIMO antenna consists of two Semi-Circle Antennas (SCA) which acts as a radiating patch for achieving UWB operation. The frequency range of UWB is from 3.04 to 10.87 GHz. The high isolation is achieved by inserting an E-shaped slot in the radiating patch, and further enhancement is achieved by inserting a narrow slot in the ground plane. It can be seen that there is good agreement between the simulated and measured results which indicates that the proposed antenna is suitable for UWB applications.
