Paper Abstract

Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) Radio Frequency (RF) systems can offer substantial increases in capacity over their single antenna wireless link counterparts. In the case of optical wireless links the nature of the channel makes such benefits less clear however. In this paper the likely benefits and applications are discussed, and results from a simple line of sight demonstration are presented.
