Paper Abstract

A spatial diversity transmitter consisting of multiple diode lasers with individual collimating lenses has been demonstrated to be effective in reducing fading caused by scintillation. The normalized standard deviation of the intensity at the receiver is reduced by the sware root of the number of transmitting elements, when they are separated by at least the correlation distance for intensity fluctuations.
