Abstract
MIMO communication systems exploit the rich multipath propagation between radio transceivers and offer a significant increase in throughput and range, without increase of bandwidth or overall transmit power [1, 2]. Antenna array design is of key importance for MIMO system performance and the optimal design requires knowledge of the relationship between antenna- and system-level characteristics. Recent experimental work has confirmed what characteristics MIMO arrays must have so that the multipath interface is capacity achieving in rich multipath scenarios and capacity preserving in the ensemble of all multipath scenarios [3]. These characteristics include omnidirectional elements and low mutual coupling between elements.
