An Alternative Technique for Estimating the k -Factor from the Phase of the Electromagnetic Field Within a Reverberating Chamber
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 44, 27-40, 2013
Abstract
In this paper, an alternative technique for estimating the Rice factor, K, is applied to the phase of electromagnetic field within a reverberating chamber (RC) for classifying the fading depth on the coherent components in the emulated line-of-sight (LOS) environments. The estimator is time-effective and general, and can be applied for any angle of arrival (AoA) of the received field and for any time varying propagation channel as a complementary method to the classical estimators for evaluating K above all when small but consistent coherent components are present. Measurements accomplished at the RC of the Università di Napoli Parthenope (formerly Istituto Universitario Navale, IUN) confirm the goodness of the proposed technique.
