Abstract
Mitigation of index of refraction turbulence (IRT) effects is crucial in long-range atmospheric communication links. Diversity-transmission is one favorable way for fading compensation. One of several different diversity concepts is the exploitation of the wavelength-dependent index of refraction of the atmosphere, which leads to ideal stochastically independent fading at different wavelengths, depending on the scenario. This concept is here named wavelength-diversity (WLD). Theoretical analysis and numerical simulation for the strength of this effect are given and verified by experimental tests.
