Zero-forcing MIMO efficiency in random line-of-sight
Paper in proceedings, 2016

We derive the Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) efficiency of the Zero-Forcing (ZF) receiver algorithm in Random Line-Of-Sight (Random-LOS). We make use of the Probability-of-Detection (PoD) curves based on the ideal digital threshold receiver model in the derivations. We show that the MIMO efficiency in this case, is mainly determined by two factors: the smallest channel gain of the two available bit streams and the non-orthogonality coefficient. This must be considered when designing antenna systems for efficient communication at higher frequencies since Random-LOS propagation will be dominating.
