On self-interference cancellation in wireless full duplex

Öncel, Aksay Fatih
Full duplex is a newly promising duplexing method. Unlike traditional time division or frequency division duplexing, in full duplex the transmit and receive signals of a transceiver are active at the same time and in the same frequency band. This can double the spectral efficiency. However, since the transmit signal is typically much more powerful than the receive signal at the receive antenna, it acts as a strong interferer to the received signal and this interference must be mitigated first, in order to fully leverage full duplex. Until recently, because of the interference problem, the use of full duplex in data communications was generally avoided. Recently, however, as a result of demand for higher spectral efficiency e specially f or f uture g eneration c ellular a nd wireless communications, research advances are made in the mitigation of this interference which paved the way for achieving practical full duplex. In this thesis the following work has been done, 1) a survey of full duplex with its brief history and recent advances is presented, 2) critical presentation and analysis of selected methods of self-interference cancellation in analog and digital domains are made, 3) a selected adaptive filtering method is expanded, 4) selected methods’ and expansion’s performance are evaluated with simulations, 5) experiments are carried out using software defined radios. It was shown with experiments and simulations that, local oscillator phase noise constitutes a bottleneck for full duplex operation. In simulations, without phase noise, cancellation of self-interference up to the thermal noise floor is accomplished. However, in the presence of phase noise in experiments, also verified by simulations, the cancellation in digital domain hits a limit which prevents complete cancellation of self-interference after a certain power. This limitation impels the use of other means of self interference cancellation than digital, if one wishes to cancel out all self interference even at high powers. 


SWIM : a new multicast routing algorithm for wireless networks
Akyürek, Alper Sinan; Uysal Bıyıkoğlu, Elif; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2011)
In this work, a new multicast routing algorithm for wireless networks is presented. The algorithm, called SWIM (Source-initiated WIreless Multicast), is a depth-optimal multicast tree formation algorithm. SWIM is fully distributed and has an average computational complexity of O(N 2 ). SWIM forms a shared tree from the source(s) to destinations; yet, as a by-product, it creates a multicast mesh structure by maintaining alternative paths at every tree node. This makes SWIM suitable for both ad hoc networks a...
Autoencoder-Based Error Correction Coding for One-Bit Quantization
Balevi, Eren; Andrews, Jeffrey G. (2020-06-01)
This paper proposes a novel deep learning-based error correction coding scheme for AWGN channels under the constraint of one-bit quantization in receivers. Specifically, it is first shown that the optimum error correction code that minimizes the probability of bit error can be obtained by perfectly training a special autoencoder, in which "perfectly" refers to converging the global minima. However, perfect training is not possible in most cases. To approach the performance of a perfectly trained autoencoder...
An Efficient Hybrid Beamforming and Channel Acquisition for Wideband mm-Wave Massive MIMO Channels
Kurt, Anıl; Güvensen, Gökhan Muzaffer (2019-01-01)
In this paper, an efficient hybrid beamforming architecture together with a novel spatio-temporal receiver processing is proposed for single-carrier (SC) mm-wave wideband massive MIMO channels in time-domain duplex (TDD) mode. The design of two-stage beamformers is realized by using a virtual sectorization via second-order channel statistics based user grouping. The novel feature of the proposed architecture is that the effect of both inter-group-interference (due to non-orthogonality of virtual angular sec...
Circular arrays of log-periodic antennas for broadband applications
Ergül, Özgür Salih (2006-11-10)
Circular arrays of log-periodic (LP) antennas are designed for broadband applications. A sophisticated electromagnetic simulation environment involving integral equations and fast solvers is developed to analyze the LP arrays both accurately and efficienuy. The resulting matrix equation obtained by the discretization of the electric field integral equation is solved iteratively via the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA). Genetic algorithms interacting with MLFMA is employed to optimize the excitati...
Cooperative Localization In One-Hop And Multi-Hop Wireless Sensor Networks Using Alternating Minimization Algorithm
Erdemir, Ece Naz; Tuncer, Temel Engin (2016-05-19)
In this work, a new approach is proposed to solve cooperative localization problems in wireless sensor networks for both one-hop and multi-hop cases. To find the unknown positions of randomly distributed sensors with limited power and communication ability, noisy inter-sensor distances and anchor node positions are used. In a plane, when the distances between a sensor and at least three neighbor anchors are known, it is possible to find the sensor position by solving a linear set of equations. However, for ...
