Free standing linear arrays (FSLA) are analyzed and optimized to increase MIMO capacity. A MIMO channel model based on electric fields is used. The effects of mutual interactions among the array elements are included into the channel matrix using method of moments (MoM) based full-wave solvers. A tool to design an antenna array of superior MIMO capacity for any specified volume is developed. Particle swarm optimization is used as the main engine for the optimization tasks of the tool. Uniform linear arrays, uniform circular arrays and non-uniform arrays are analyzed and compared in terms of their channel capacity.
