Abstract
The experiment is designed and taken to measure the link gain in a single-input multiple-output ultraviolet (UV) communication system with diversity reception, and the correlation of multichannel is also taken into account. Theoretical and experimental research on the multireceiver UV communication system suggests that diversity reception is an effective way to gain high BER performance even if the link gain correlation is non-negligible (with normal level correlation coefficient). The link gain of diversity reception is compared particularly with the gain from expanding the detecting area to find its boundary for performance improvement and the distance limit between receivers. The experimental results provide more reliable guidelines for receiver design in UVC systems and other scattering wireless optical communication channels with diversity reception applied such as multiple-input multiple-output.
