Theory for Wireless Full-duplex

Full-duplex promises to transform today's wireless networks by letting base stations transmit and receive on the same frequency and at the same time. The challenge to full-duplex is the high-powered self-interference that swamps the receiver. Experiments at Rice have shown that proper antenna design is key to enabling full-duplex, and that isolating the receiver from self-interference backscattered from nearby objects is the biggest challenge. I will present a theory of wireless full-duplex that emphasizes backscattering by marrying antenna theory and information theory. Analysis using this theory proves that joint antenna and signal design can enable full-duplex even in high-scattering environments.
