This paper presents results based on polarimetric radio channel measurements at 60 GHz in a small room and in an empty, unfurnished, medium-sized room. The measurements in the small meeting room were performed using dual-polarized virtual antenna array elements at both the transmitter and receiver sides and includes LOS and NLOS scenarios. In the unfurnished room, a directional horn antenna was scanned in the azimuth plane and the Rx antenna was an omnidirectional antenna. Based on these measurements, the paper presents experimental parameter estimates for a novel model of the polarimetric propagation paths, that includes the power-decay as well as a correlated fading for the different polarization components. This work also includes an estimation method that takes measurement limitations caused by the noise floor and the limited cross-polarization discrimination of the antennas into account using censored samples.
