A Revisit to Spatial Correlation in Terms of Input Network Parameters
Journal article, 2012

An alternative compact formula in terms of input network parameters for calculation of envelope correlations is provided. The main advantage of this formula is that it can be simply modified to include cases of lossy structures and general cases of correlated nonuniform multipath environments. This formula is based on the open-circuit covariance matrix of the multiport antennas. The latter can be either estimated or quickly measured in a reverberation chamber, which removes the need for costly measurements of the embedded far field patterns.
