Beam steering for interference avoidance in IRS systems

This paper proposes using multiple antenna sub-arrays at the base station to form independent beams towards each user device. This beam steering aims to mitigate inter-user interference and avoid unwanted signal reflections off the intelligent reflecting surface (IRS). The scheme combines benefits of orthogonal multiple access (no interference) and non-orthogonal multiple access (full resource use). Simulations verify substantially improved system capacity.
