Abstract

A new low-profile planar Eleven antenna is designed for optimal MIMO performance as a wideband MIMO antenna for micro base-stations in future wireless communication systems. The design objective has been to optimize both the reflection coefficient at the input port of the antenna and the 1-bitstream and 2-bitstream MIMO efficiency of the antenna at the same time, in both the Rich Isotropic MultiPath (RIMP) and Random Line-of-Sight (Random-LOS) environments. The planar Eleven antenna can be operated in 2-, 4-, and 8-port modes with slight modifications. The optimization is performed using genetic algorithms. The effects of polarization deficiencies and antenna total embedded efficiency on the MIMO performance of the antenna are further studied. A prototype of the antenna has been fabricated and the design has been verified by measurements against the simulations.
