Power Scaling Laws and Near-Field Behaviors of Massive MIMO and Intelligent Reflecting Surfaces

The use of large arrays might be the solution to the capacity problems in wireless communications. The signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) grows linearly with the number of array elements N when using Massive MIMO receivers and half-duplex relays. Moreover, intelligent reflecting surfaces (IRSs) have recent...
