Correlation coefficient of received signals across a pair of antennas is a key performance indicator for multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) systems. For multipath environments with uniform 3-D angular power spectrum, the signal correlation between two antennas can be exactly calculated from their 3-D radiation patterns. When radiation patterns are unavailable, a simplified approach that only requires the antennas' scattering parameters can be used instead. However, the simpler method assumes… CONTINUE READING
