Detailing a systems approach, Optical Wireless Communications: System and Channel Modelling with MATLAB ®, is a self-contained volume that concisely and comprehensively covers the theory and technology of optical wireless communications systems (OWC) in a way that is suitable for undergraduate and graduate-level students, as well as researchers and professional engineers.
Incorporating MATLAB ® throughout, the authors highlight past and current research activities to illustrate optical sources, transmitters, detectors, receivers, and other devices used in optical wireless communications. They also discuss both indoor and outdoor environments, discussing how different factors-including various channel models-affect system performance and mitigation techniques.
In addition, this book broadly covers crucial aspects of OWC systems:Fundamental principles of OWCDevices and systemsModulation techniques and schemes (including polarization shift keying)Channel models and system performance analysisEmerging visible light communicationsTerrestrial free space optics communicationUse of infrared in indoor OWC
One entire chapter explores the emerging field of visible light communications, and others describe techniques for using theoretical analysis and simulation to mitigate channel impact on system performance. Additional topics include wavelet denoising, artificial neural networks, and spatial diversity. Content also covers different challenges encountered in OWC, as well as outlining possible solutions and current research trends. A major attraction of the book is the presentation of MATLAB simulations and codes, which enable readers to execute extensive simulations and better understand OWC in general.

"This book presents a thorough theoretical analysis of optical wireless communication while bridging theory with practice through MATLAB (R) programming. Using MATLAB will enable the reader to experiment with concepts directly on the computer while reading the book. It will also give the reader the opportunity to develop further concept since the basic code is readily available."

"As the field of optical wireless communications continues to spread, researchers, students, and industry practitioners face the need of an up-to-date and comprehensive textbook with sufficient detail. The book by Ghassemlooy et al. fills this critical gap and provides a much-needed resource that covers both indoor and outdoor optical wireless applications. I recommend it highly to anyone interested in the emerging area of optical wireless communications."
