Abstract

The efforts to increase the capacity of free space optical (FSO) channels are strongly dependent on the air conditions in atmosphere. It is well known that absorption and scattering in atmosphere will cause attenuation of the light intensity, while clear-air atmospheric turbulence will eventually induce the wave-front distortions and intensity fluctuations. Both the intensity attenuation and fluctuations are observed differently in terrestrial and maritime air conditions and will impose the limits to both the transmission distance and achievable bit rates. In this paper we characterize the impact of terrestrial and maritime air conditions and evaluate performance of high-speed systems operating through terrestrial and maritime FSO channels.
