Dr. Christian Peel (Ph.D., BYU, 2004) and Prof. Lee Swindlehurst have won the 2006 IEEE Communications Society Stephen O. Rice Prize in the Field of Communications Theory for their two-part paper "A Vector-Perturbation Technique for Near-Capacity Multiantenna Multiuser Communication," co-authored with Dr. Bert Hochwald of Beceem Communications, Inc. The paper appeared in the January and March, 2005, issues of the IEEE Transactions on Communications, and presents a new approach for exploiting antenna arrays to communicate with a number of wireless terminals simultaneously.
