The current wireless communication technologies demand high data rates, seamless connectivity and low latency. The Multiple Antenna system is one of the primary technologies that promise a high data rate. This system performance is improved when the antennas are highly isolated and mutual coupling among the antenna elements is low. In this article, the performance of a 2-port Multiple antenna system is enhanced with two decoupling strategies, namely, Slotted Ground (SG) and Square Split Ring Resonator-metamaterial (SSRR- metamaterial) with the slotted ground. The antenna system is assessed through the Envelope Correlation Coefficient(ECC), Diversity Gain (DG), and Mean Effective Gain for both decoupling methods. The obtained value of ECC for SSRR-metamaterial with the SG and with SG alone is 0.00024 and 0.004, respectively. The results indicate that the SSRR-metamaterial with the SG offers superior isolation between antenna elements, thereby improving the performance of the overall antenna system.
