Effects of Regular and Aperiodic Array Layout in Multi-User MIMO Applications
Paper in proceedings, 2017

In MIMO applications, antenna arrays adopt a uniform regular lattice. However, in phased array applications, it is a well-known fact that aperiodic or irregular arrays can offer several advantages. In this paper, we present initial investigations on the effects of regular and aperiodic layouts in Multi-User MIMO applications. We aim at explaining and providing an intuitive understanding on why aperiodic arrays are superior to regular ones. Additional results and quantification of the advantages will be presented in an upcoming journal publication.
