Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


The radiation pattern and polarization characteristics of base station under indoor propagation environments are investigated experimentally and theoretically. The horizontal polarization formed large electric field distributions rather than vertical polarization, and that the optimum polarization to obtain a smaller attenuation coefficient is a horizontal polarization excited by the flat antenna, which has nulls toward floor and ceiling. The field distributions obtained by the ray tracing analysis agreed with the experiments. The optimum polarization is determined by the cross section of the corridor and the radiation pattern of the base antenna.
