—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)
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)
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)
