In this study, an inductive decoupling technique of microstrip array for ultra high fields has been discussed. The decoupling inductance is nearly independent of resonant frequency. Thus microstrip arrays can be tuned and work well at the magnetic fields higher than 7T. For the prototype of volume array, the introduced inductors can reduce the mutual coupling not only between adjacent elements, but also between non-adjacent elements.
