—Free-space-optical (FSO) coherent communication is a cost-effective, license-free, high-sensitivity and wide-bandwidth access technique for high date rates applications, whereas its performance strongly suffers from the turbulent atmosphere for the reason of both intensity scintillation and phase fluctuation. In this paper, the intensity scintillation is(More)
We restudy the influence of beam wander on the uplink of ground-to-satellite laser communication, using the effective pointing error method, for a collimated untracked Gaussian beam under a weak atmospheric turbulence condition. It shows that the beam wander may cause significant increase in bit error rate (BER), and there exists an optimal transmitter(More)
The heterodyne efficiency of a coherent free-space optical (FSO) communication model under the effects of atmospheric turbulence and misalignment is studied in this paper. To be more general, both the transmitted beam and local oscillator beam are assumed to be partially coherent based on the Gaussian Schell model (GSM). By using the derived analytical form(More)
In an air-to-ground free-space optical communication system, strong background interference seriously affects the beacon detection, which makes it difficult to establish the optical link. In this paper, we propose a correlation beacon detection scheme under strong background interference conditions. As opposed to traditional beacon detection schemes, the(More)
On behalf of all the ICACT2016 international conference committees, we would like to welcome all of you to ICACT2016. It is a great pleasure for us to host The ICACT is annual international conference in the communications field, where all experts from home and abroad come together to present their work, and share new ideas and visions for achieving the(More)
The analytical expression for the rms beam width of the radial gaussian beam array propagating in non-Kolmogorov turbulence is derived, where the coherent combination is considered. The influences of the beam number, the generalized exponent, and the ring radius on the rms beam width are investigated. The results indicate that the rms beam width depends(More)
We demonstrate an external-cavity laser system using an anti-reflection coated laser diode as gain medium with about 60 nm fluorescence spectrum, and a Rb Faraday anomalous dispersion optical filter (FADOF) as frequency-selecting element with a transmission bandwidth of 1.3 GHz. With 6.4% optical feedback, a single stable longitudinal mode is obtained with(More)
