In recent years, MIMO technology which uses multiple antennas has been introduced in mobile terminal to increase communication capacity. However, if MIMO antennas are put closely, a strong mutual coupling occurred. Then it causes decreasing radiation efficiency and channel capacity. Therefore, reducing the mutual coupling is required. In previous study, connecting MIMO antennas by inductor L or added branch elements to antennas instead of L. In this paper, we propose a novel decoupling method by using a short stub and confirm that proposed model performed decoupling, increased radiation efficiency.
