Matlab based Simulink Modelling and Performance Analysis of Free Space Optical Communication System: A Review

Main Article Content

Jagtar Singh


Free Space Optical communication is extended and compatible technique with the radio frequency technology. FSO provides BW spectrum that is in terahertz besides this speed of the data transfer is very fabulous. Due to these advantages FSO is becoming very popular communication technology for satisfying the growing demand of bandwidth traffic mainly for the long-distance communication. FSΟ communication has achieve important attention between various researchers for more BW and to transmit data securely in various domains. There must be integrated environment for FSΟ system which have robust mechanism to overcome signal loss under turbulence condition varies from medium to strong. During data transmission BER must be minimized otherwise significant information may be lost. There are various mechanism to control BER against various parameters like path loss factor, distance and atmospheric condition. After investigation various research paper, a robust
