In order to distinguish the most rigorous model, we made a comparison between measurements data and the mostly used empirical models. These models use the visibility as a basic parameter to predict the fog attenuation. In order to measure the visibility, we used a laser lamp of 532 nm and two light sensors. The experimental set up is composed of a fog machine and two KORUZA terminals operating at 1310 nm and 1550 nm, respectively. Every one minute, the measured attenuation is averaged to one value then compared to the attenuation calculated based on measured visibility and according to the empirical models cited previously.
