Research output: Patent


An optical mirror diversity receiver for a visible light communication system is provided with an array of photodiodes each having an optical-signal-receiving area, with a mirror positioned between an adjacent pair of photodiodes to preferentially redirect light toward one of the photodiodes while also blocking light that would otherwise be received at the photodiode. An angle-aided mirror diversity receiver is also provided with surfaces of the photodiodes aligned relative to the mirror to yield reductions in correlation.
