Abstract

A 2D electromagnetic band gap (EBG) structure is designed on the ground plane of 1×2 rectangular patch antenna array to reduce the mutual coupling between the two elements and enhance the radiation pattern. An isolation of -41 dB has been achieved with the EBG structure relative to -20 dB without the EBG.
