Improved Fractional Fourier Transform Based Receiver for Spatial Multiplexed MIMO Antenna Systems



In this work the performance of a Fractional Fourier transform (FrFT) based Minimum Mean Squared Error receiver for MIMO systems with space time processing over Rayleigh faded channels is presented. The proposed receiver called Optimum FrFT based MIMO receiver (OFMR) shows improved performance outperforming the simple MMSE receiver in Rayleigh faded channel.
