This letter studies the performance of indoor wireless communication systems operating at 60 GHz with different polarization schemes. Circular polarization is known to reduce multipath effects in line-of-sight (LOS) environments in the 60 GHz band. We propose a modified channel model based on the IEEE 802.15.3c channel model to incorporate the polarization effects. We then use this model to evaluate the error performance of a wireless communication system that uses circular polarization. The results are compared with linear polarization for LOS environments.
