In this letter, we investigate the possibility of using the mantle cloaking approach to reduce mutual blockage effects between two electrically close antennas. In particular, we consider the case of two dipoles resonating at different, close frequencies and separated by an electrically short distance (lambda(0)\\\/10 at 3 GHz). We show that by covering the two antennas with properly patterned metasurfaces printed on realistic substrates, it is possible to make each antenna invisible to the other and preserve their individual operation as if they were isolated. This new cloaking application is confirmed by realistic full-wave numerical simulations.

Abstract

In this letter, we investigate the possibility of using the mantle cloaking approach to reduce mutual blockage effects between two electrically close antennas. In particular, we consider the case of two dipoles resonating at different, close frequencies and separated by an electrically short distance (lambda(0)\\\/10 at 3 GHz). We show that by covering the two antennas with properly patterned metasurfaces printed on realistic substrates, it is possible to make each antenna invisible to the other and preserve their individual operation as if they were isolated. This new cloaking application is confirmed by realistic full-wave numerical simulations.
