Abstract

Extending the field-of-view (FoV) of underwater wireless optical communication (UWOC) receivers can significantly ease the need for active positioning and tracking mechanisms. Two bundle of scintillating fibers emitting at 430- and 488-nm were used to detect two independent signals from ultraviolet and visible laser sources. A zero-forcing approach to minimize inter-channel crosstalk was further implemented. A net aggregated UWOC data rate of 1 Gb/s was achieved using two wavelengths and a non-return-to-zero on-off keying scheme.
