Manosha Sekar and Sonal Gahankari

In this paper, mutual Coupling reduction in Printed Monopole Antenna with Electromagnetic Band gap Structure has been investigated. Printed Monopole antenna is basically printed Micro strip antenna with etched ground plane for multi-band application. In Particular we have designed at 5.8GHz frequency which is applicable in wireless communication. Thus, for 3D Electromagnetic simulation of high frequency components, ZelandIE3D software is used. The objective of this paper is to reduce mutual coupling in 2 element rectangular printed monopole antenna array with EBG structure and compare various parameters such as mutual coupling, return loss etc without EBGstructure.
