This paper introduces a novel compact planar Ultra-Wideband (UWB) Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output (MIMO) antenna with dual-band notched performance for Surfaces Penetrating (SP) application. To avoid interference from co-existing systems, two notched bands are introduced by including strips inside the radiating patches. The two ports MIMO antenna is printed on the low-cost FR4 substrate having a compact size of 56×32.47×1.5 mm3. The measured results indicate that the −10 dB bandwidth of the

The effects of numerous construction and decoration surfaces on the antenna's reflection coefficients are measured. Gypsum, White Portland Cement, Slate, Marble, Wood and Reinforced Concrete were tested. A good penetrating capability is measured which confirms the aptitude of the proposed MIMO antenna to work as SP antenna.
