Atmospheric turbulence causes degradation in the performance of free space optical (FSO) transmission. This turbulence is referred to as scintillation. To mitigate this effect, a multiple input multiple output (MIMO) system is employed. This paper investigates and compares the performance of FSO MIMO systems in different atmospheric turbulence conditions such as weak, moderate, and severe when binary pulse position modulation (BPPM) is employed. In particular, single input multiple output (SIMO… CONTINUE READING
