Antenna Decoupling Using An Electromagnetic Band Gap Meta-Material

Application ID: 12045


An Electromagnetic Band Gap (EBG) structure can be used to increase the isolation between antennas close to each other. The decoupling effect is not only a function of frequency but also polarization and coupling-plane configuration.

When designing an EBG structure, one needs to make sure to not apply an incorrect frequency and polarization, since this would increase the coupling between devices. This design challenge highlights the need for detailed simulations of such structures.
