Abstract

The multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) performance of the modulated scattering antenna array (MSAA) is analyzed numerically for the first time in indoor environment based on an approach to hybridization of the Volterra series method and method of moments (MoM) in this letter. Mutual coupling effect between the Modulated scattering element (MSE) and the normal antenna element is also considered in this analysis. It is found that MIMO performance of the MSAA is improved with reducing the array spacing of the MSAA in 4 different indoor receiving areas. At the same time, the simulated results of the MSAA are compared with those of the dipole antenna array at the same condition.
