Research area and interests

Free-space optics:

· Modulation and channel coding

· Statistical channel turbulence modelling

· Fading and noise reduction; Diversity techniques

· Signal processing in MIMO configurations

Optical sensor networks

Underwater optical communication:

· Channel characterization

· Modulation and channel coding

· Transmitter-receiver design

· Channel turbulence modelling

Wireless RF Communication:

· MIMO systems: signal detection, space-time coding and decoding

· Iterative (turbo) detection, equalization, and channel estimation

· Physical layer design in wireless sensor networks

Research Facilities


· Currently no local facilities in our team for experimental measurements. We benefit from industrial collaborations for doing the experiments. Most part of our research remains theoretical, however.


· Monte Carlo simulator for performance evaluation of FSO systems (MATLAB code)

· Wave-optics simulator for FSO wave propagation (MATLAB code)
