Abstract
It has been proposed that six co-located antennas, namely three electric and three magnetic dipoles, can offer up to a six-fold capacity increase in wireless channels, relative to that of single antennas. In other words, six degrees of freedom (DOFs) can be supported by co-located six-port transmit and receive antenna arrays. However, due to the complexity in designing and measuring such a six-port antenna, to our knowledge, no experimental verification has yet been successfully performed. In this paper, the six DOFs hypothesis is experimentally verified at the 300 MHz band. The experiment involved the design and fabrication of two six-port arrays, and MIMO channel measurements in a rich scattering environment with these arrays.
