A practical guide to next-generation wireless terrestrial optical communication through the atmospheric channel

Terrestrial Wireless Optical Communication provides in-depth details on free space optics (FSO), from basic concepts to design implementation. The book explains channel characteristics in the near-IR and IR range of the spectrum, atmospheric channel models, modulation and detection techniques, optimal performance, capacity enhancement methods, and forward-error coding schemes. Link and system design issues, reliability, and safety standards are also discussed. The information in this essential guide enables you to deliver cost-effective andtransparent wireless network interoperability and expandability.

Coverage includes:

  • Introduction--optical wireless communication systems
  • Wireless optical channels
  • Channel modeling
  • Modulation techniques
  • Diversity and detection techniques in optical fading channels
  • Channel capacity
  • Coding in FSO channels
  • FSO link and system design

Devi Chadha, PhD, is Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi. Her current research interests are in the area of Optical Free Space and Optical Fiber Communication systems and networks.
