Abstract

The performance of a free-space optical (FSO) communication system under strong turbulence regime that follows the K distribution is evaluated. Some useful channel statistics are derived in closed form and the outage probability and ergodic capacity for a single-input single-output FSO link are evaluated. Numerical examples are further presented to verify the accuracy of the derived mathematical expressions.
