Optimized Multi-Emitter Beams for Free-Space Optical Communications through Atmospheric Turbulence

Abstract

We report an experimental study of scintillations in a free-space optical communication channel with turbulence. Using optimized multi-emitter beams results in a substantial reduction of scintillation index. Experimental results agree with calculations based on Rytov theory.
