Abstract: Millimetre‐waves offer the possibility of wide bandwidth and consequently high‐data rate for wireless communications. For both uni‐polarised and dual‐polarised systems, signals sent over a link may suffer severe degradation because of antenna misalignment. Orientation robustness may be enhanced by the use of mutual orthogonality in three dimensions. Multiple‐input multiple‐output polarisation diversity offers a way of improving signal reception without the limitations associated with spatial diversity. Scattering effects often assist propagation through multipath. However, high‐path loss is often considered to limit millimetre‐wave propagation, thereby reducing any reception enhancement through scattering. We show that the inclusion of a third orthogonal dipole at a frequency of commercial interest provides antenna orientation robustness in this setting, as well as improved performance in a rich scattering environment, by means of a Ricean fading channel model.
