Paper Abstract

In this paper we investigate the impact of polarization dynamics in interference analysis in urban areas; furthermore we connect the polarization dynamics with different scattering environments and frequencies which introduces more flexibility for diversity schemes and the implementation of concepts such as polarization MiMO etc. The key idea is that once a non-monochromatic wave impinges upon buildings, the spectral components of the wave are variably depolarized upon scattering. In wideband signals we show that polarization dynamics are different in various frequencies and different environments and that introduces another degree of freedom to reduce interference, to add diversity and therefore improve capacity.
