Power splitter design for two-element antenna array with high mutual coupling
ABSTRACT Design principles for a power splitter driving a strongly coupled two-element handset array antenna have been derived and studied. Splitter circuits using lumped elements and distributed microstrip elements were designed and tested. The results show reasonable agreement between measured and theoretical results.

ABSTRACT: An investigation into a two-element phased antenna array mobile handset using the MoM/FDTD hybrid method is presented. The array is designed to provide a spatial null in the near field zone in the direction of the human head. Compared with an omnidirectional antenna, the overall efficiency and azimuth coverage are improved and the peak specific absorption rate in the head can be reduced by at least 10 dBElectronics Letters 10/1999; · 1.04 Impact Factor
