The Investigation of SNR for Free Space Optical Communication Under Turbulence

Pelin Demir, Güneş Yılmaz


Atmospheric turbulence is a significant attenuation effect in free-space optical communication systems. The turbulence varies according to the vertical distance, temperature, pressure and wind speed. In this study, SNR values with three different wavelengths and turbulence strength were analyzed up to 10 km altitude. As a result of the analysis, the SNR values were compared according to height and turbulence values.
