© 2020 IEEE. This letter presents a novel distributed choking technique, the spiral choke, for scattering suppression in dual-band antenna arrays. The working principle and the scattering suppression capability of the choke are analyzed. The spiral chokes are implemented as low-band radiators in a colocated 4G and 5G dual-band array to suppress cross-band scattering while broadening the bandwidth of the choked element. The experimental results demonstrate that the cross-band scattering in the array is largely eliminated, and the realized dual-band array has very stable radiation performance in both well-matched bands.
