Abstract

A mutual coupling reduction strategy that employs meta-structures is introduced for wideband, dual-polarized, high-density, planar, and patch antenna arrays. The meta-structures consist of two types of resonators: grounded capacitively loaded loops (GCLLs) and π -shaped elements. By incorporating the meta-structures into the array configuration, the isolation levels between adjacent radiating elements in both the E- and H-planes orientations are improved by as much as 7.15 dB. The surface current distribution behaviors of the array with only the GCLLs and with only the π -shaped elements are investigated thoroughly to explain the mutual coupling reduction mechanisms. A proof-of-concept array was constructed and tests were performed that validate the reported design principles and simulation results.
