Uniform Circular Antenna (UCA) is a convenient way to generate multiple Orbital Angular Momentum (OAM) beams simultaneously, and OAM-MIMO is promised to be an augmentation to enhance capacity. In this paper, concentric UCA which is an elaborate arrangement of MIMO antennas is adopted. OAM-MIMO transceiver mode selection and precoding architectures are proposed to improve the coaxial capacity performance. Non-coaxial parameters and their effect on mathematical channel matrix are analyzed, and

Using the central antenna to separate transmitting (TX) misalignment and receiving (RX) misalignment, modified noncoaxial parameters and deviation matrices can be obtained with reduced complexity, dealing with the lack of non-coaxial parameters in practice. Moreover, to make for the orthogonality between different OAM modes, pre-transmitting and pre-receiving matrices are designed employing estimated modified non-coaxial parameters or deviation matrices to transfer the non-coaxial channel into a block circulant one. The provided simulation results verify the superiority of the proposed mode-selection and precoding design as well as the effectiveness of the proposed non-coaxial pre-processing scheme.
