Paper Abstract

Visible light communication (VLC) has been regarded as a promising solution in short-range intelligent communication system. Nowadays, the research is focused on integrating the multi-input multi-output (MIMO) technique in the VLC system, to achieve a larger transmission capacity and stronger transmission reliability. However, one important issue should be addressed due to the use of MIMO technology: the multipath inter-symbol interference. The multipath intersymbol interference comes from the reflection of the signal in the room and channel crosstalk between different channels. In this paper, we propose a novel optical system used in the MIMO VLC system to reduce multipath interference dramatically. Signals from different LEDs can be separated by using parabolic lens plated with reflecting film. This structure can reduce the reflection effect effectively as well. We present the simulation results to observe the distribution of optical power on the imaging plane for various receiving positions and low correlation between all channels. We can find that the optical power density becomes stronger than non-imaging system and the interference is sharply decreased, thus the SNR and BER are also optimized. Analysis about the optical system is given in this paper.
