    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterProfessional


    The introduction of multiple antennas at the transmitter and/or at the receiver provides spatial diversity in the system. This spatial diversity can be exploited using Space Time Block Code (STBC) or Space-Time Trellis Coding (STTC). However, these spatial diversity schemes cannot be straightforwardly applied with FBMC/OQAM due to the intrinsic interference. Many research works have been carried out to deal with this issue. This chapter gives an overview of the most significant contributions, with focus on blockwise and interference cancellation based Alamouti schemes.
