Patch antenna suffers from surface wave radiation and mutual coupling reduces antenna gain. To overcome this, EBG structures are used. Mostly used EBG structures are 2D type. Here proposing a uniplanar EBG showing the effect on mutual coupling and gain of antenna arrays. Changing the gap is studied to find the effect on bandwidth of operation.
