Paper Abstract

The performance of a free-space optical interconnect (FSOI) system based on a super-Gaussian-Bessel (SGB) beam is evaluated. The signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is used as the performance measure. The SNR of an FSOI system utilizing SGB is analyzed, evaluated, and compared with the SNR of the system that uses a Bessel beam. We show that for large interconnect distance the achievable SNR of the former is superior to that of the latter.
