Efficiency characterisation of multi-port antennas
Journal article, 2012
A simple radiation efficiency metric is introduced to include the effects of non-ideal source/receiver impedances. The features of this parameter are highlighted and its compact formula is derived. The notion of mean matching efficiency is established. Simulations prove that this matching efficiency is quite useful in a quick estimation of diversity performance of multi-port antennas in rich isotropic multipath environments.
