Implementation and assessment of a non-line of sight network cluster operating at the UVC wavelength band

Abstract

Non-Line-of-Sight optical communication systems have attracted a lot of interest the last few years due to their obvious advantages such as no requirements for optical beam tracking, existence of obstacles between transmitter and receiver. In this paper, we report on the implementation and performance characteristics of a fully operational peer to peer network consisting of autonomous, properly designed nodes interconnected through scattered UVC light. Properly arranged groups of UVC LED emitters and photomultiplier receivers have been used in each terminal while pulse position modulation have been implemented at the physical layer. In the link layer, the rules for communication and collisions avoidance between nodes are also set.
