Paper Abstract

Wireless optical communication (WOC) technology delivers a cost-effective, secure, reliable, and efficient solution to the needs of customers who require fast performance network connections between multiple locations. One of the biggest challenges facing WOC deployment is proper understanding of optical signal propagation in different atmospheric conditions. Propagation of optical signals through these atmospheric turbulence channels causes attenuation and scattering of the transmitted beam. Atmospheric effects of absorption by rain, haze, scattering by particles (such as fog, and solar background radiation (SBR)) on Wireless Optical Communications for terrestrial communication were studied.
