Abstract

Optical wireless communication is regarded as the next-generation high-speed technology. It has demonstrated its capability to deliver data faster than any other state-of-the-art wireless communication technique. This technology has drawn attention as a means of implementing reliable high capacity outdoor systems that cannot be implemented by conventional fiber optics. It has emerged recently as an efficient solution to match the larger bandwidth and high data rates requirement of the upcoming wireless communication systems. However, although FSO (free space optics) system has many appealing features, it has rather disappointing performance for long links due to the degrading effects of atmospheric turbulence-induced fading. In the presence of such type of performance impairments, the received signal exhibits random intensity fluctuations, which increase the BER (bit error-rate), where the severe weather conditions can have a detrimental impact on the performance, which may result in an inadequate availability. The MIMO wireless optical procedure, in which the spatial dimensions are used to improve the reliability and spectral efficiency of point-to-point links, provides a promising approach to mitigate turbulence effects due to its powerful performance enhancing capabilities.
