MIMO channel capacity of printed arrays with dipole elements is analyzed. A MIMO channel model based on electric fields is used. The effects of mutual interactions among the array elements through space and surface waves are included into the channel matrix using a full-wave hybrid Method of Moments (MoM)/Green's function technique in the spatial domain. MIMO capacity of printed arrays is then compared with that of free standing thin wire dipole arrays. Results show better performance of printed arrays.
