Abstract

In this paper, we present the gain enhancement of a microstrip MIMO antenna using a superstrate layer. The basic structure is a microstrip patch antennas consist of a metallic patch on one side of the dielectric substrate with ground plane on other side. The main aim of this paper is to obtain a high gain microstrip MIMO antenna. The antenna system consists of 2x2 radiating elements of same dimensions printed on a substrate. Superstrate layer has been designed to load the microstrip MIMO antenna. The unloaded MIMO antenna resonates at 5.8GHz with gain of 6.687dB. Whereas when loaded with the superstrate the gain increase to 9.428dBi which corresponds to gain enhancement 40.98%. This antenna can be used for Wi MAX. This structure are simulated and analysis using High Frequency Structure Simulator (HFSS) software.
