Keywords/2 dipole antennas, 3D diversity antenna measurement system, anechoic chamber, antenna mutual coupling, antenna radiation patterns, closely spaced dipoles, coupled circuits, dipole antenna arrays, dipole cross-correlation coefficients, diversity reception, far-field radiation patterns, S-parameters, side-by-side lambda

Cross-correlation coefficients of two side-by-side lambda;/2 dipole antennas as a function of space separations are calculated from antenna patterns measured using a 3D diversity antenna measurement system in an anechoic chamber. Autocorrelation coefficients determined from the measured patterns of a lambda;/2 dipole antenna agree well with the theoretical model. The effects of antenna mutual coupling on the cross-correlation coefficients of two lambda;/2 dipole antennas are obtained experimentally and analysed.
