We investigate the variation of measured multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channel capacity for line-of-sight (LOS) Ricean scenarios inside a typical indoor environment for various transmitter-receiver positions at a center frequency of 2.45 GHz. In order to quantify the effect of LOS component on indoor MIMO performance, an absorber-loaded metal panel was utilized to artificially obstruct the LOS path between the transmit and receive antennas. Our results confirm that MIMO capacity decreases with the increase in the values of Ricean K factor. We have also observed that the variation in channel capacity closely follows the corresponding deviations in root mean square (rms) delay spread of the channel. © 2005 IEEE.
