A tri-band Multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) antenna system for LTE 700, LTE2500 and GSM 1800/1900 mobile handset application is presented. The whole system consists of four identical 3-D IFAs (inverted F antenna) folded on FR4 cuboids. Without any special designed decoupling structures, the measured isolation among antenna elements is higher than 20 dB in the low and upper bands, even in the middle band, the isolation is higher than 13.7 dB. Reflection coefficient, correlation coefficient, gain and radiation pattern are also presented. Acceptable agreement between the antenna models with and without plastic housing, battery and LCD screen demonstrate that the proposed antenna is a competitive candidate for mobile handsets.
