Free Space Optics

Research focusing on: Outdoor optical wireless (OW) systems have recently gained attention as a broadband alternative in niche applications including semi-permanent office interconnections and MAN implementations. Despite the inherent advantages of outdoor OW systems, the transmission of light through the atmosphere can be challenging. Apart from weather-dependent static transmission losses that may limit the system
