Multi-input multi-output antenna measurements with super wide bandwidth for wireless applications using isolated T stub and defected ground structure
AbstractThe paper presents the idea of defective ground structures for the improvement in the radiation characteristics of the antenna especially in the multi-input multi-output (MIMO) configuration. The proposed antenna model with partially flared out feed system is designed and analyzed with defective ground in both single and array configuration. A T stub is a T shaped stub used in this work with defected ground structure. A T stub is included along with defective ground to enhance the MIMO configuration features. The simulations are carried out on electromagnetic modelling tool and analyzed by measuring the parameters like reflection coefficient, voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR), gain, radiation pattern and current distribution plots. For the fabrication of the proposed antenna these measurements are very important. The antenna is fabricated and validated in terms of S-parameters and VSWR. The proposed results are good agreement with the simulated results. The overall size of the antenna is 24 × 18 x 0.8 mm3.
