In this paper, a 4×4 MIMO-UWB antenna rejected WLAN band based on Electromagnetic Bandgap (EBG) is presented. The MIMO antenna is printed on a FR4_epoxy substrate with the dielectric constant of 4.4 and a thickness of 1.6 mm. A mushroom-like EBG is used to reject the WLAN frequency at 5.5 GHz. In order to reduce the mutual coupling of the antenna, a stub structure acting as multi-mode microstrip resonator is inserted to suppress the effect of surface current to the elements of the proposed… CONTINUE READING
