On channel capacity of FSO communication systems in anisotropic non-Kolmogorov strong turbulent atmosphere

Ata, Yalcin
Average channel capacity of free space optical (FSO) communication systems using a Gaussian beam with the intensity modulation and direct detection technique is investigated in anisotropic non-Kolmogorov strong turbulent atmosphere. The channel model is selected as gamma-gamma distribution, which is valid for strong turbulence. Obtained results show that anisotropy in both the horizontal and vertical affects the average channel capacity of an FSO communication system positively. Average channel capacity increases with the increase of photodetector quantum efficiency, wavelength, Gaussian beam source size, inner scale length, and non-Kolmogorov power law exponent. An increase of link length, turbulence structure constant, and noise variance causes a decrease in average channel capacity. The average channel capacity falls very little with the increase of outer scale length. (C) 2019 Optical Society of America


Assessment of large format InP/InGaAs quantum well infrared photodetector focal plane array
Ozer, S; Cellek, OO; Beşikci, Cengiz (Elsevier BV, 2005-10-01)
We report the fabrication and characteristics of large format (640 x 512) InP/In0.53Ga0.47As long wavelength infrared (LWIR) quantum well infrared photodetector (QWIP) focal plane array (FPA). The FPA, which is hybridized to a read-out integrated circuit having a charge capacity of 1.1 x 10(7) electrons, yielded a mean noise equivalent temperature difference (NETD) of similar to 40 mK at a cold finger temperature as high as 77 K. The performance of the FPA, being comparable to that of AlGaAs/GaAs QWIP FPAs,...
Performance of M-ary pulse position modulation for aeronautical uplink communications in an atmospheric turbulent medium
Ata, Yalcin; Baykal, Yahya; Gokce, Muhsin Caner (The Optical Society, 2019-10-01)
This paper discusses the bit-error-rate (BER) performance of an aeronautical uplink optical wireless communication system (OWCS) when a Gaussian beam is employed and the M-ary pulse position modulation technique is used in an atmospheric turbulent medium. Weak turbulence conditions and log-normal distribution are utilized. The Gaussian beam is assumed to propagate on a slant path, the transmitter being ground-based, and the airborne receiver is on-axis positioned. Variations of BER are obtained against the ...
On the electrical and charge conduction properties of thermally evaporated MoOx on n- and p-type crystalline silicon
GÜLNAHAR, MURAT; Nasser, Hisham; Salimi, Arghavan; Turan, Raşit (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-11-01)
In this work, the electrical and charge conduction characteristics of a contact structure featuring thermally evaporated MoOx, deposited on n- and p-type crystalline silicon (c-Si), are extensively investigated by room temperature current-voltage (I-V), transmission line measurements (TLM), and temperaturedependent current-voltage measurements (I-V-T). XRD diffraction spectrum shows that the deposited MoOx film exhibits amorphous nature. From TLM measurements, the values of contact resistivity are calculate...
On the theory of internal photoemission in heterojunctions
Aslan, B; Turan, Raşit (Elsevier BV, 2005-08-01)
The theory of internal photoemission in semiconductor heterojunctions has been reviewed and the existing model has been extended by incorporating the effects of the difference in the effective masses in the active region and the substrate, non spherical-nonparabolic bands, and the energy loss per collisions. This complete model has been applied to describe the experimental results obtained from Si1-xGex/Si heterojunction infrared photodetectors. The barrier heights (correspondingly the cut-off wavelengths) ...
Study of vibrational modes in (Ga2S3)(x) - (Ga2Se3)(1-x) mixed crystals by Raman and infrared reflection measurements
Isik, M.; Guler, I.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2019-09-01)
Raman and infrared (IR) reflection characteristics were investigated in the frequency region of 100-450 cm(-1) for (Ga2S3)(x) - (Ga2Se3)(1-x) mixed crystals for compositions of x increasing from 0.0 to 1.0 by intervals of 0.25 obtained by Bridgman crystal growth technique. In the Raman spectra of these crystals four dominant peak features were observed while two bands were detected in the IR spectra of interest samples. Kramers-Kronig dispersion relations applied to IR spectra presented the frequencies of t...
