Abstract

A novel structure based on complementary split-ring resonators (SRRs) is introduced to reduce the mutual coupling between two coplanar microstrip antennas that radiate in the same frequency band. The new unit cell consists of two complementary SRR inclusions connected by an additional slot. This modification improves the rejection response in terms of bandwidth and suppression. The filtering characteristics of the band-gap structure are investigated using dispersion analysis. Using the new structure, it was possible to achieve a 10-dB reduction in the mutual coupling between two patch antennas with a separation of only 1/4 free-space wavelength between them. Since the proposed structures are broadband, they can be used to minimize coupling and co-channel interference in multiband antennas.
