Abstract: In current study, mushroom type metamaterial substrate is designed to operate at ISM band and is embedded in 2X2 array as a ground. Unique properties of mushroom type metamaterial substrate like as high impedance surface (HIS) helped in design of low aperture antenna, Artificial magnetic conductor (AMC) helps in enhancing the radiation characteristics and Forbidden band gap (FBG) helps in suppressing transverse electric (TE) and transverse magnetic (TM) wave propagation hence point of mutual coupling and side lobe levels are reduced. So, 2X2 array antenna with corporate feed resonating at 2.5GHz is embedded by array of mushroom type metamaterial unit cells is designed in HFSS and obtained results are compared with 2X2 array resonating at 2.5GHz on conventional conducting ground results. An enhancement in impedance band width of 2.47%, gain of 2.91dB and with lowered side lobe reduction of 3.74dB.
