In this study we investigated the effect of an
RF shield on the mutual coupling between adjacent and non-adjacent array
elements in a simple model mimicking our previously developed cylindrical eight
channel transceiver head array. Both numerical EM simulations and experimental
measurements suggest that at 124 MHz and 400 MHz an RF shield can substantially
decrease S12 for non-adjacent-array elements.
