Abstract

Patch antennas have emerged rapidly with advancement of communication technology. For antenna design purposes, Finite difference time domain (FDTD) method is a commonly used. This paper focuses on the interaction among elements of MIMO antenna also known as mutual coupling using FDTD method. An M shape is introduced and with placement of isolating structure, round about 12dB of isolation is increased without degradation of performance parameters. The proposed antenna design can be used for radar and satellite services applications.
