Abstract
The 2 × 2 multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) capacities of three types of colocated dual-polarized loop (DPL) antennas with different current distributions and isolations are investigated in the free space (FS) channel, the corridor with perfect electric conductor walls (PEC corridor) and the corridor with concrete walls (CON corridor), separately. Capacity results show strong dependences on both the structure and the position of the DPL antenna, in addition to the propagation conditions. For all the three propagation scenarios, the largest capacity can be reached is in the PEC corridor, employing the DPL antenna with a uniform current distribution and a high isolation. Specifically, for a 20 dB signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), the maximum dual-polarized MIMO capacity is 13.1 bps/Hz, which is 1.97 time of that obtained by the one-polarized loop. It is also noted that, the rich-multipath environment can increase the robustness of the DPL MIMO system and the difference of the MIMO capacity obtained by different antenna structures will get smaller with respect to that in the FS channel.
