Free Space optical Communications

The Optical Communications (OPTCOM) Group is also very active in the field of wireless optical communications, in the free space scenario and in the atmospheric medium scenario. This is one of the most recent activities of the group, but has already led to good results thanks to the participations to two projects funded by Italian Space Agency and collaborations with Thales Alenia Space. The group has developed a large expertise on Computer modelling and simulation on free space optical transmission systems in free space and turbulent medium scenario, and experimentation on transmission optical system impairments by outdoor performance measurements.
