Two ground radiation antennas with polarisation diversity performance were proposed for MIMO WLAN applications in wearable devices. The antennas can simultaneously excite the vertical mode and horizontal mode of the ground plane and the phase difference between the two modes can be controlled by utilising an inductor-loaded metal strip in the ground plane, generating circular polarisation. A 3:1 VSWR bandwidth of 140 MHz with high isolation (above 17 dB) and a 3 dB axial ratio bandwidth of 100 MHz was obtained. The opposite rotations generated by the two antennas resulted in good diversity performance, which was verified by the measured envelope correlation coefficient.
