Increasing Channel Capacity of an Ultrawideband MIMO System Using Vector Antennas

Recently it was shown that co-located vector antennas can provide the same capacity increase as spatial array antennas in multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems. This paper describes the design of a vector antenna consisting of a loop antenna and two orthogonal bowtie antennas for a ultrawideband (UWB) MIMO system that operates in the frequency range… CONTINUE READING
