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 [...]

Weekly Seminar: “OTFS: A New Generation of Modulation Addressing the Challenges of 5G”

18 July 2017 - 18 July 2017
Speaker: Christian Ibars Casas, Cohere Technologies (USA)

ABSTRACT: A new two-dimensional modulation technique called Orthogonal Time Frequency Space (OTFS) modulation designed in the delay-Doppler domain is introduced as a waveform ideally suited to new 5G use cases. Through this design, which exploits full diversity over time and frequency, OTFS coupled with equalization converts the fading, time-varying wireless channel experienced by modulated signals [...]
