In this paper, we propose a periodic reactance time function for 2-element electronically steerable passive array radiator (ESPAR) antennas applicable to the receivers of both single-input multiple-output (SIMO) and multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems with 2 outputs. Based on the proposed function, we evaluate the power patterns of the antenna for various distances between two antenna elements. Moreover, for the distances, we discuss the correlation properties and the strength of the two outputs to find the appropriate distance for the receiver. From the discussions, we can conclude that distances from 0.1 to 0.35 times the wavelength are effective in terms of receive diversity.
