Abstract

Presented is an analysis of the topology of a 3 x 3 element planar (square) array antenna with vertically polarized isotropic antenna elements. The focus has been on fixed multiple-input multiple-output communication links in pure line-of-sight channels. An empirical equation is presented for the mid-elements' relative position on the sides of the square array achieving near-optimal (3 x 3) x (3 x 3) multiple-input multiple-output capacity. It is observed that the position is a function of both the separation distance between transmit and receive antennas and the wavelength of the transmit signal in a similar way as for 3 x 3 systems with linear arrays. The capacity gains of the aperiodic planar array over the uniform planar array antenna configurations are presented. It is shown that considerable capacity gains in capacity can be obtained by choosing the right array topology following a simple design rule.
