Abstract

This article reports on a simple yet efficient technique of magnetic coupling suppression among densely packed E coupled patch antenna arrays. As compared to the traditional techniques to reduce mutual coupling such as inserting a metamaterial structure between the two adjacent elements, the presented technique can achieve a lesser physical gap between the two radiating elements. Two element antenna array is used in this work where edge-to-edge separation of the antenna elements are kept at λ0/3 and isolation of 45 dB has been achieved at 6 GHz.
