Résumé : This paper investigates the polarization behaviour of indoor multi-polarized MIMO channels at 3.6 GHz. Measurements have been carried out in non-line-of-sight (NLOS) and line-of-sight (LOS) using a dual-polarized transmitter and a tri-polarized receiver. The spatial and delay characteristics are extracted using a per-tap beamforming algorithm. Distinct waves are isolated and the polarization of each wave is expressed in terms of its spherical components. The evolution of the waves polarization is investigated as function of its physical propagation parameters. The polarization of the waves is shown to be sensitive to spatial characteristics, while being insensitive to delay. Direct line-of-sight rays show to have higher XPD than in the NLOS case, while the reflected rays have a similar XPD than in a NLOS case.
