A Comparison of spatial modulation and spatial multiplexing systems in multipath fading channels

Saygılı, Halil
In this thesis, multiple antenna transmission techniques like spatial multiplexing, spatial modulation and multiple active spatial modulation are compared in multipath fading channels. Maximum likelihood sequence estimation (MLSE) based on the Ungerboeck observation model is the optimal operation for intersymbol interference channels and applied on the mentioned multiple antenna transmission strategies. The performance analysis based on Monte Carlo simulations and comparison of the computational complexity of the studied receiver structures showed us that spatial modulation has the lowest complexity and it can be an alternative to classical spatial multiplexing systems for low spectral e ciencies. But performance of spatial modulation starts to deteriorate for higher spectral e ciencies. In this case, multiple active spatial modulation is still a low complexity alternative for spatial multiplexing. Delayed decision feedback sequence estimation (DDFSE) based on the Ungerboeck model which is a suboptimal reduced state detection algorithm is also applied to these multiple antenna techniques. The performance analysis based on Monte Carlo simulations reveals that error propagation in DDFSE exacerbates the performance di erence between spatial multiplexing and modulation.


Investigation of microwave metamaterial based on H-shaped resonator in a waveguide configuration and its sensor and absorber applications
Sabah, Cumali; Taygur, Mehmet Mert; ZORAL, EMİNE YEŞİM (2015-04-13)
A microwave metamaterial (MTM) based on H-shaped resonator in a waveguide configuration is introduced and investigated both numerically and experimentally for X-band frequencies. The proposed model is designed and fabricated on both sides of the substrate and exhibits strong magnetic resonance at around 10.5GHz. Additionally, it has very simple design which improves and simplifies the fabrication process. Besides, only one single slab is used in the simulation and experiment which provides a reduction in th...
Performance Comparison of Single and Dual Polarized MIMO Systems
Soker, Burak; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2013-04-26)
Polarization diversity in a 2x2 MIMO communication system is investigated for Alamouti and spatial multiplexing transmission schemes. Parameters such as cross polar discrimination and correlation coefficients introducing the polarization diversity are included in the channel model. Receive antenna correlation coefficients are generated from a realistic random model. The relative performance of the single and dual polarizations depends significantly on the channel characteristics. Single and dual polarizatio...
On event signal reconstruction in wireless sensor networks
Atakan, Baris; Akan, Oezguer B. (2007-05-18)
In Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN), the effective detection and reconstruction of the event signal is mainly based on the regulation of sampling and communication parameters used by the sensor nodes. The aim of this paper is to understand the effect of these parameters on the reconstruction performance of event signal in WSN. Theoretical analysis and results show that with proper selection of sampling and communication parameters, the event signal can be satisfactorily reconstructed at the sink. Furthermore,...

Yüksel, Yılmaz Çağrı; Alatan, Lale; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2015)
The aim of this thesis is to utilize Dielectric Resonator Antennas (DRA) as array elements due to their advantages over other conventional antenna elements such as dipoles and microstrip patches. Depending on both the excitation mechanisms and the antenna shape, a Dielectric Resonator Antenna (DRA) provides its designer multiple independent degrees of freedom. In this thesis three antenna shapes, namely hemispherical, cylindrical and rectangular DRAs, are investigated. The cylindrical and the rectangular sh...
On the Implementation of Optimal Receivers for LFM Signals using Fractional Fourier Transform
Candan, Çağatay (2008-05-30)
We present a novel receiver structure for the detection and parameter estimation of linear frequency modulated signals. The proposed structure is based on the relations between the fractional Fourier transform and the ambiguity function. It has been shown that the optimal ML receiver, which is the peak detector in the ambiguity plane, can be implemented at a reduced search complexity with the proposed method. The proposed method uses two 1-dimensional search operations in two different fractional Fourier do...
