Paper Abstract

A free space Gigabit Ethernet optical communication system is proposed in this paper. We experimentally transmit medical image though the Gigabit Ethernet optical-fiber communication system with a multiple quantum well semiconductor optical applier (MQW-SOA). The beam divergence of the light free space transmission is also analyzed. The bit error rate (BER) formula as derived with considering the free space transmission beam divergence. To increase the transmission distance of Gigabit Ethernet optical-fiber communication system, we use the optical amplifier as a booster amplifier. We study the divergence angle of beam below 0.05 rad. And the relation between SNR and BER is also considered.
