Mutual coupling is an inevitable phenomenon in multiantenna systems, usually reducing the system performance. Numerous works have focused on the reduction of this effect. The aim is maintaining the mutual coupling suppressing structure as simple as possible while having a high amount of mutual coupling reduction. This letter presents a novel structure suppressing the mutual coupling between nearby patches. It is composed of only a simple U-shaped microstrip, which reduces the mutual coupling considerably. The structure has been constructed and tested. The measurement results prove the high efficiency of this configuration.
