Paper Abstract

Free space optical communication systems represent one of the most promising approaches for addressing the emerging broadband access market, it can provide high bandwidth with no physical contact, but are hampered by signal fading effects due to particulate scattering caused by atmospheric turbulence. In this paper, we propose a new channel model of MIMO free space optical communication system. The physics meaning of this model is very clear, and its format is very simple. Mathematic results show that MIMO is a very effective way for intensity fluctuation reduction induced by turbulence, thus reduce the bit-error-rate of the system.
