A compact, low profile and multiband dual-element folded strip monopole is presented for mobile phone MIMO applications. Both the compactness and the multiband operation are achieved by loading the folded strip with a split ring resonator (SRR). The antenna elements are placed on the same mobile PCB arm in order to achieve angle diversity that enhances ports isolation, especially below 1 GHz. The proposed antenna achieves isolation of higher than 12 dB, enveloped correlation coefficients (ECC) of less than 0.1, apparent diversity gain around 10 dB and total efficiencies of greater than 60 within the frequency band of interest (GSM850, DCS1800, PCS1900, and LTE2500).
