This work presents a single-carrier massive MIMO transmission system for the frequency selective Gaussian multi-user channel. It considers both cases of spatially uncorrelated and correlated channel and compares them in terms of the user sum-rate as well as the general performance. We consider a channel with M antennas at the base station which provides services for K single-antenna users. We develop a general expression for the achievable rate among users in the channel with a correlation among antennas at the base station. It has been shown that, when there is no correlation between base station antennas or users, the channel matched filter precoder outperforms any other precoder. In a highly-correlated massive MIMO channel however, the conventional channel matched filter precoder does not perform as expected. We show the failure of the channel matched filter in the presence of a correlation pattern among antennas at the base station with theoretical analysis and simulations. We apply three different precoders to enhance the achievable rate and their performances are determined by simulations. We show that the precoders outperform the channel matched filter in a highly-correlated channel with a large number of users. By increasing the number of users in the system, the conventional precoders show even better performance in terms of the user's sum-rates.


The effect of antenna position and environment on MIMO channel capacity for a 4 element array mounted on a PDA.
Dumanli, Sema; Tabak, Yasemin; Railton, Chris; Paul, Dominique; Hilton, Geoff (2006-09-12)
The properties of a four element slot antenna array mounted on a PDA for a MIMO system are investigated by means of a Finite Difference Time Domain analysis and a multipath channel model. The effects of changing the positions of the antenna elements on the PDA box and the effect of the box being held in a human hand are investigated.
The effects of mutual coupling between antenna elements of the performance adaptive arrays
Özkaya, Güney; Alatan, Lale; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2003)
Array processing involves manipulation of signals induced on various antenna elements. In an adaptive array system, the radiation pattern is formed according to the signal environment by using signal processing techniques. Adaptive arrays improve the capacity of mobile communication systems by placing nulls in the direction of interfering sources and by directing independent beams toward various users. Adaptive beamforming algorithms process signals induced on each array element that are assumed not to be a...
The effect of antisymmetric tensor unparticle mediation on the charged lepton electric dipole moment
Iltan, E. O. (IOP Publishing, 2011-10-01)
We study the contribution of antisymmetric tensor unparticle mediation to the charged lepton electric dipole moments and restrict the free parameters of the model by using the experimental upper bounds. We observe that the charged lepton electric dipole moments are strongly sensitive to the scaling dimension d(U) and the fundamental scales M(U) and Delta(U). The experimental current limits of electric dipole moments are reached for the small values of the scaling dimension d(U).
A Novel Software for Automatic Calibration Factor Measurement of RF Power Sensors
Kizilbey, Oguzhan; Arslan, Murat; Bayrak, Yusuf; Çetinkaya, Anıl; Yugruk, Aydin; Danaci, Erkan (2022-01-01)
In this letter, a software for calibration factor (CF) measurement of radio frequency (RF) power sensors (PS) by using VNA-based direct comparison transfer method (VBDCTM) was developed on C# platform. Measurements were performed between 10 MHz and 18 GHz frequency range. When the calibration factors calculated with conventional CF measurement method and novel software were compared, a maximum difference of 4.56% was found in the 10 MHz - 18 GHz frequency band. Therefore, the automatic CF measurement softwa...
A Novel Input Impedance Computation Method for Coaxial Probe Fed Microstrip Antennas by Utilizing Characteristic Modes
Cetin, Metehan; Alatan, Lale (2017-07-14)
A method to efficiently compute the input impedance of the coaxial probe fed microstrip antennas by using characteristic modes is proposed in this paper. The efficiency is achieved by defining a discontinuous source current at the feed location that models the current injected by the probe. The input impedance is simply expressed in terms of modal excitation coefficients and eigenvalues of each mode.
