Due to correlation behavior of the electromagnetic wave components, there is an immense need of deploying impressive polarization techniques in wireless communication systems which could boost the channel capacity. Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output (MIMO) antenna system holds a lot of promise to enhance the spectral efficiency. The diversity and signal processing employed with MIMO transforms a point-to-point single channel into multiple parallel channels, hence in effect multiplying the capacity. This paper highlights the importance of electromagnetic field polarization to enhance capacity of the communication channel. In this paper a simulation study to investigate the capacity of orthogonally-polarized MIMO channel under various parameters has been presented. The parameters of study include number of antenna elements, element spacing and eigenvalue analysis of the received signal. We find that the capacity is increased by increasing the number of antenna elements and spacing between them. Furthermore, Simulation result reveals that capacity can be tripled by incorporating MIMO communication techniques to access the entire discernible electric and magnetic polarized fields.
