Wireless communications are increasingly vulnerable to simultaneous jamming and eavesdropping attacks due to the inherent broadcast nature of wireless channels. With this focus, due to the potential of reconfigurable intelligent surface (RIS) in substantially saving power consumption and boosting information security, this paper is the first work t...

In most multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communication systems, e.g., Massive MIMO, the antenna spacing is generally no less than half a wavelength. It helps to reduce the mutual coupling and therefore facilitate the system design. The maximum array gain is the number of antennas in this settings. However, when the antenna spacing is made very...

A fundamental challenge in millimeter-wave (mmWave) communication is the susceptibility to blocking objects. One way to alleviate this problem is the use of reconfigurable intelligent surfaces (RIS). Nevertheless, due to the large number of passive reflecting elements on RIS, channel estimation turns out to be a challenging task. In this paper, we...

Massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) is believed to deliver unrepresented spectral efficiency gains for 5G and beyond. However, a practical challenge arises during its commercial deployment, which is known as the "curse of mobility". The performance of massive MIMO drops alarmingly when the velocity level of user increases. In this paper,...

The acquisition of channel state information (CSI) in Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) massive MIMO has been a formidable challenge. In this paper, we address this problem with a novel CSI feedback framework enabled by the partial reciprocity of uplink and downlink channels in the wideband regime. We first derive the closed-form expression of the ra...

For a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system, or a multiuser MIMO system, it is important to acquire the accurate channel state information. In this article, a superimposed-pilot-based channel estimation scheme is proposed for multicell multiuser MIMO uplink systems. In this scheme, the pilot sequences and data sequences are superimposed, but...

The idea of using a Reconfigurable Intelligent Surface (RIS) consisting of a large array of passive scattering elements to assist wireless communication systems has recently attracted much attention from academia and industry. A central issue with RIS is how much power they can effectively convey to the target radio nodes. Regarding this question,...

Reconfigurable intelligent surfaces (RISs) have recently received widespread attention in the field of wireless communication. An RIS can be controlled to reflect incident waves from the transmitter towards the receiver; a feature that is believed to fundamentally contribute to beyond 5G wireless technology. The typical RIS consists of entirely pas...

This paper considers the problem of efficient feedback design for massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) downlink transmissions in frequency division duplexing (FDD) bands, where some partial channel state information (CSI) can be directly exchanged between users via device-to-device (D2D) communications. Drawing inspiration from classical p...

Channel state information (CSI) feedback is a challenging issue in frequency division duplexing (FDD) massive MIMO systems. This paper studies a cooperative feedback scheme, where the users first exchange their CSI with each other through device-to-device (D2D) communications, then compute the precoder by themselves, and feed back the precoder to t...

In multiuser massive MIMO systems, it is not clear whether users should feed back the channel or the precoder when they can exchange the channel state information (CSI). This paper compares the precoder feedback scheme with the channel feedback scheme. It is found that when there are sufficient number of bits for CSI exchange, the precoder feedback...

We propose novel approaches to design feedback in FDD massive MIMO systems. We exploit synergies between massive MIMO systems and inter-user communications based on D2D. The exchange of local CSI among users, enabled by D2D communications, makes available global CSI at the terminals. Thus, we can construct more informative forms of feedback based o...

This paper considers the problem of interference control in networks where base stations signals are coherently combined (aka network MIMO). Building on an analogy with so-called massive MIMO, we show how second-order statistical properties of channels can be exploited when the massive MIMO array corresponds in fact to many antennas randomly spread...

Pilot contamination is known to severely limit the performance of large-scale antenna (“massive MIMO”) systems due to degraded channel estimation. This paper proposes a twofold approach to this problem. First we show analytically that pilot contamination can be made to vanish asymptotically in the number of antennas for a certain class of channel f...
