Abstract
The Theory of Characteristic Modes has been shown capable of facilitating the development of many high-quality antennas through providing the characteristic modes (CMs) inherent to a structure. The CMs will change if the structure is altered; this property has been used to adapt terminal antennas, enabling good MIMO performance in compact structures. Previously these designs focused on altering the terminal structure without consideration into the effects of essential internal components on the desired CMs. Components such as touch screens, cameras, microphones, and batteries will change the CMs of the structure, which can in turn lead to the CM-based MIMO antennas to become non-orthogonal or non-resonant. Until now, relatively little work... (More)
The Theory of Characteristic Modes has been shown capable of facilitating the development of many high-quality antennas through providing the characteristic modes (CMs) inherent to a structure. The CMs will change if the structure is altered; this property has been used to adapt terminal antennas, enabling good MIMO performance in compact structures. Previously these designs focused on altering the terminal structure without consideration into the effects of essential internal components on the desired CMs. Components such as touch screens, cameras, microphones, and batteries will change the CMs of the structure, which can in turn lead to the CM-based MIMO antennas to become non-orthogonal or non-resonant. Until now, relatively little work has been done to analyze the impact of these internal components on CM-based antennas. This article studies the effects internal components on the CMs of a MIMO terminal chassis, and how these effects can be mitigated. (Less)
