Abstract

This investigation centers on the impact of antenna design on directional polarization modulation (PM) systems for increased wireless network security. Often, new PM methods are proposed without accounting for antenna effects, which unfortunately compromises the accuracy of their evaluation. Polarization state is directly linked to the inherent physical structure of the antenna and its feed, so we propose benchmarks for comparing several aspects of the radiated polarization state from typical dual-polarized antennas. Applications wishing to relay information via polarization states should take these factors into account in order to achieve the true performance capabilities of the modulation technique.
