Paper Abstract

This paper gives special attention to wireless local area networks using infrared technology mainly with respect to the reception techniques and presents the performance evaluation of optical sectored receivers for indoor wireless communication systems in the presence of artificial and natural noise sources. Performance evaluation was extended to four distinct sectored receiver configurations which result in significant gains over a non-sectored optical receiver. A characterization of the ambient light noise distribution due artificial light was performed. Also, the radiation patterns of some directional incandescent lamps were measured and modeled through a generalized Lambertian function. The feasibility of optical sectored receivers in the presence of directional light sources is demonstrated.
