When communicating optically through the clear atmospheric channel, not only is there atmospheric turbulence and background noise, but there may also be interference from other sources such as other users in a multiple access system. Even if the interference is off axis, its signal can couple into the receiver through scattering. We would like our communication system to perform well in the presence of interference, background noise, and fading. This paper investigates the performance of… CONTINUE READING
