Paper Abstract

Atmospheric scattering of ultraviolet light is examined as a mechanism for short-range, non-line-of-sight (NLOS) communication between nodes in energy-constrained distributed sensor networks. A test bed for evaluating NLOS UV communication hardware and modulation schemes is described, and the bit error rate measured in the test bed is used to validate a numerical performance model. Design tradeoffs for a baseband UV transceiver are discussed and performance estimates obtained from the validated numerical model are presented.
