Abstract

In this paper, we apply the mantle cloaking method to reduce the mutual coupling between two closely spaced wideband antennas operating at microwave frequencies. We show that by introducing two dielectric elliptical shells around the antennas and covering them with two strongly coupled elliptically shaped metasurfaces comprised of I-shaped printed unit cells, it is possible to significantly increase the original bandwidth of the antennas and, at the same time, reduce the mutual electromagnetic interaction. This effect is observed both in a reduction of mutual S-parameters between the antennas and in the restoration of the original radiation patterns, as if the antennas were almost completely isolated from each other. Broadband metasurface/cloak designs are proposed for two geometries, with the free-standing strip monopole antennas placed over a ground plane and with the metasurface cloaks integrated with microstrip antennas.
