A compact four triangular shape microstrip antenna with defected ground for multiple input multiple ouput (MIMO) systems is presented in this paper. The multi-feed four triangular patches are placed uniquely without any distance to each other; however, the mutual coupling reduction is achieved by adding slots on the antenna's ground. The antenna is designed to operate at 3.3 GHz WiMAX application and studied experimentally regarding mutual coupling reduction. Details of the antenna design, simulated and measured results on the return loss and mutual coupling reduction of the proposed antenna are presented.
