Science and Research

Research areas
The research work is divided into theoretical and experimental part. In theoretical part, the research work is focused on modelling of the turbulent atmosphere affecting optical beams. Classifying the atmospheric phenomena with regard to transmission demands and service type utilizing the link are investigated. The complex model of the optical wireless link which represents synthesis of both steady and statistical model was developed.
In experimental part, the research work is focused on searching and finding methods deteriorating effect of the atmospheric turbulence on the required quality of communication. The experimental
research also includes finding the optimal optical sources for the optical wireless communications and investigation of the optimal optical beam shape mitigating the
atmospheric turbulence effect on transmission reliability.
System aspects of the optical wireless link transceiver and corresponding elements are also investigated. The concept of all-photonic transceiver using only optical fiber and passive optical fiber elements is studied. Transmission and physical limits for the optical wireless communication are specified.
