—In this letter, transmit laser selection for multiple -input–single-output free-space optical communication systems with intensity modulation and direct detection over strong atmospheric turbulence channels is analyzed. Assuming channel side information at the transmitter and receiver, a transmit diversity technique based on the selection of the optical(More)
A new upper bound on the capacity of power-and bandwidth-constrained optical wireless links over gamma-gamma atmospheric turbulence channels with intensity modulation and direct detection is derived when on-off keying (OOK) formats are used. In this free-space optical (FSO) scenario, unlike previous capacity bounds derived from the classic capacity of the(More)
In this paper, a novel adaptive cooperative protocol with multiple relays using detect-and-forward (DF) over atmospheric turbulence channels with pointing errors is proposed. The adaptive DF cooperative protocol here analyzed is based on the selection of the optical path, source-destination or different source-relay links, with a greater value of fading(More)
A novel bit-detect-and-forward (BDF) relaying scheme based on repetition coding with the relay is proposed, significantly improving the robustness to impairments proper to free-space optical (FSO) communications such as unsuitable alignment between transmitter and receiver as well as fluctuations in the irradiance of the transmitted optical beam due to the(More)
Average channel capacity for the bit-detect-and-forward (BDF) cooperative protocol over α-μ fading channels is analyzed. Novel closed-form approximate ergodic capacity expression is here obtained for a 3-way free-space optical (FSO) communication setup when the irradiance of the transmitted optical beam here considered is susceptible to(More)
In this paper, a novel cooperative protocol for free-space optical (FSO) communication systems is proposed, wherein the performance analysis is evaluated over gamma-gamma (GG) fading channels with pointing errors. This novel relaying scheme is based on the optical path selection, source-destination (S-D) or source-relay-destination (S-R-D), with a greater(More)
