1 Radio Propagation in Hallways and Streets for UHF Communications Dana Porrat Advisor: Professor Donald Cox

2 Outline Propagation in cellular systems The over-moded waveguide model Comparison to measurements Applications of the model

3 Propagation Models Ray tracing – requires a lot of detail and computation (Bell Labs, Bertoni, Rappaport) Power laws – give a very general picture, weakly linked to geometry Usage: Power levels – Coverage and Interference Other properties of link

4 Street canyon effects in cities have been measured many times Guiding by indoor hallways – shown by measurements Guided Radiation

5 Motivation Insight into the propagation mechanism in hallways and streets Average predictions based on geometry, with reasonable detail and low complexity

6 Outline The multi-moded waveguide model Comparison to measurements Applications of the model

7 Key Features The wavelength at 1 GHz is 30 cm – much smaller than hallways and streets  Multi-moded waveguide The walls are not smooth  Mode coupling

8 The Smooth Waveguide x z d -d 1 st 2 nd 8 th

9 The TEM mode Field components: H y and E x Present for 2D smooth waveguide Not present for 3D rough waveguide

10 The Rough Waveguide x=f(z) x=h(z) D s Correlation Length Perturbation Variance x z d -d Dielectric Waveguide: D. Marcuse, 1970’s

11 Expansion in terms of the waveguide modes are the amplitudes of the modes Rough Walls

12 The wave equation for the smooth guide: For the rough guide: After manipulation: The Perturbation Approach

13 Fn(z)

14 The Perturbation Solution hold the spectrum of f(z), h(z)

15 The Coupled Modes The coupling coefficients among modes:

16 Air filled waveguide, homogeneous material, rough boundaries Two dimensional model Small roughness, compared to Coupling coefficients, has a Gaussian correlation with s, D Coupling between TE-TM modes behaves as single polarization coupling Assumptions

17 Coupled Power Equations Loss of the nth mode Coupling from the nth mode into other modes Coupling from other modes into the nth mode

18 Power Coupling Coefficients The coupling coefficients:

19 Solution of the Coupled Eq Solution:

20 The Steady State Solution The steady state distribution has most of power in lowest order TE mode Mode (n) P [dB]
