PhD thesis Defense: Polarization and Index Modulations: a Theoretical and Practical Perspective

In the context of this PhD thesis defense, Pol Henarejos presents his work realized at CTTC. Radiocommunication systems have evolved significantly in recent years in order to meet present and future demands. Historically, time, frequency and more recently, spatial dimensions have been used to improve capacity and robustness. Paradoxically, radiocommunications that leverage the polarization dimension [...]
