Özet

This paper proposes the configuration of a dual polarized wide-band patch antenna system suitable for indoor mobile communication applications. This configuration consists of two patch antennas, which have different feed structures from classical patch antenna configuration. These antennas, which are separated by a thin absorber to have a good isolation, are fed independently to obtain dual polarization. The antenna structure is designed, simulated, manufactured and measured. The operation bandwidth spans 1900-2700 MHz covering Bluetooth, Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN) and Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) bands. The simulations show good agreement with the measurement results that the antennas have return losses higher than 15 dB, and the coupling between two antennas is below -20 dB within the operation band.
