A compact wide-band Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) antenna having highest isolation and least correlation for millimeter-wave 5G communications is proposed in this paper. Firstly, a single antenna was designed and simulated to be working at 38 GHz, a potential target band for 5G applications. It consists of a 5-shaped radiating patch, with partial ground plane. Its length is adjusted and a wide bandwidth is obtained. Then, the two antenna elements are closely positioned with edge-to-edge spacing of 1 mm (0.55 λ, with λ is the free space wavelength at resonance). Thanks to the technique of spatial diversity, a high degree of isolation is attained; more than 25 dB in the whole bandwidth. Moreover, correlation value is under 0.0002 in the working band. The prototype antennas are fabricated and measured. The result indicates that this antenna shows a reflection coefficient under -10 dB over a range of frequencies from 32.3 to 54.6 GHz (BW=22.3 GHz, 58.68% fractional bandwidth). The antenna presents a high realized gain of 7.12 dBi and radiation efficiency of about 82.46% at the desired frequency. Due to these results, our antenna may be regarded a suitable candidate for mm-wave 5G MIMO applications.
