Channel Capacity Enhancement by Pattern Controlled Handset Antenna
This paper presents a radiation pattern controlled antenna for handset terminals to reduce the correlation coefficient between antennas and enhance the channel capacity in MIMO applications. A pair of small inverted-F shaped antennas combined by a phase shifter provides a single port with controlled pattern. To enhance the channel capacity, the phase difference for the IFA array is optimized using the evaluation parameter of reception level, correlation coefficient and mean effective gain of the proposed array geometry. The channel capacity enhancement is verified by assuming Croneker scattering under Nakagami-Rice propagation model.
