Multi-port matching efficiency in antenna systems with cascaded networks
Paper in proceedings, 2012
A general compact formula for multi-port matching efficiency in the presence of an arbitrary number of cascaded networks is introduced. A comparison between the decoupling efficiency and multi-port matching efficiency is presented. Similarly, a compact formula for decoupling efficiency in a cascaded chain is provided. The presented compact formulas are quite advantageous for optimization of radiation efficiencies by designing a proper matching network.
