Paper Abstract

Ultraviolet communication is a new means of free space optical communication links developed since 1990's. In the paper, we first point out the low data rate drawback of the UV communication system using mercury lamp, and find the limitation arises because of the self trapping of the mercury atomic resonance radiation. Then the working principle and the max modulation speed o f the high data rate UV communication system are explained, at last the high date rate UV communication system which based on the low pressure iodine lamp is described in details. The high UV communication system includes an emitter, a receiver and light propagation channel. The light propagation channel is in the low air. Finally, the system has accomplished good voice and high data rate communication in short distance and its maximal communication rate is 48Kbps which decuple the data rate of the UV communication system made by GTE in 2000. Because of shorter wavelength of the iodine UV source, the whole communication system is more suitable for the security communication usage.
