Paper Abstract

Retroreflective free-space optical communication is a new method of optical communication, it is achieved by using a multiple-quantum-well (MQW) modulator as a passive data transmitter. This work analyzes the polarization propagation of light in the MQW modulator, and the corresponding influence to a retroreflective link. Results show that, on the condition that the intensity and incident angle of the incident light remains to be constant, the polarization and intensity of the transmitted light varies markedly; if the polarization of the incident light is carefully considered for a specific MQW modulator, the retroreflective signals can be improved for a retroreflective free-space optical communication link.
