Paper Abstract

Free-space optical (FSO) communication has gained popularity for wireless applications over legacy radiofrequency for advantages like unlicensed band, spatial reuse, and security. Even though FSO can achieve high bit-rate, range limitation due to attenuation and weather dependency has always restricted its practical applications. Building-to-building communication, smart cars, and air-subsea links are potential futuristic applications for mobile and secure ad-hoc FSO networks, where in-band full-duplex FSO (IBFD-FSO) transceivers will potentially increase network capacity significantly to improve performance and reliability. In this work, we model an IBFD-FSO transceiver consisting of a VCSEL and a photodiode to determine the range and weather dependent performance of the link.
