In this paper, we propose a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) uplink transmission scheme for optical wireless communication applications. The transmission is based on optical single-carrier frequency domain equalization (SC-FDE) due to its low complexity where the signal is transmitted over infrared communication channels. Based on non-sequential ray tracing, we first obtained realistic infrared MIMO channel impulse responses including low-pass filter effect of infrared light-emitting-diodes. We then investigate the performance of bit-error-rate (BER) and peak to average power ratio (PAPR) with respect to different modulation orders using spatial multiplexing.
