Atmospheric turbulence can cause a significant performance degradation in free space optical communication systems. An efficient solution could be to exploit the temporal diversity to improve the performance of the transmission link. Depending on the tolerable delay latency, we can benefit from some degree of time diversity that we can exploit by employing(More)
Signal modulation has an important impact on the system performance in optical communication. Two attractive modulation schemes are pulse position modulation (PPM) and multipulse PPM (MPPM), which have the advantage of average energy efficiency and bandwidth efficiency, respectively. An important practical issue is to employ an efficient channel coding of(More)
— For terrestrial free space optical (FSO) systems , we investigate the use of pulse position modulation (PPM) which has the interesting property of being average-energy efficient. We first discuss the upper bound on the information transmission rate for a Gaussian channel. Next, we consider the more practical aspect of channel coding and look for a(More)
Depending on the tolerable delay latency, we can benefit from some degree of time diversity in free-space optical links, by employing channel coding and interleaving. We present a comparative study of the performance of different channel coding techniques at the presence of time diversity. We show that turbo-codes are particularly efficient under strong(More)
