Free-space optical (or optical wireless) communications represent an attractive technology for the realization of high-bandwidth wireless communications. However, for propagation through the atmosphere the characteristics of the optical signal are different from those of the signals from, e.g., fiber channels or radio-frequency wireless channels, and therefore the error characteristics on these links are also different. For evaluating fading mitigation techniques for optical wireless… CONTINUE READING
