An efficient four-elements mmWave multiple-input multiple output (MIMO) antenna is proposed for use in 5G system The proposed MIMO mmWave design operates at 35GHz and occupies an overall volume of 12.5 mm × 12.5 mm × 0.8 mm 3 . This antenna exhibits a good matching impedance at the operating frequency of 35GHz mmWave band, where an isolation greater than 25 dB, envelope correlation coefficient (ECC) less than 0.02, and diversity gain (DG) of around 10dB are obtained. The 4-elements MIMO mmWave antenna also shows a peak gain of 6 dBi with 87% of peak radiation efficiency. The obtained results along with size miniaturization signify that the proposed MIMO antenna is deemed as an appropriate candidate for millimeter wave based wireless applications.
