Design A Compact Mimo Antenna For 4G Wimax Applications

Authors(2) :-Harikrishnan M Nair, Dr. K Jayanthi

MIMO antennas are a type of antennas using more than one antenna for transmission and reception of signals. The proposed 2x2 MIMO antenna having two antennas in that one antenna is horizontally polarized and another antenna is vertically polarized. The proposed antenna works on C band. The newly designed 2x2 MIMO system works on 5GHz with 250MHz-300MHz bandwidth with reduced VSWR and high gain. The advantages of proposed MIMO antenna system are compact size, maximum reduced interference and high data rate and can used for WiMax applications.
