Abstract

We present a numerical technique to simulate the propagation characteristics of an on-off-keyed modulated optical signal through fog. The on-off-keyed modulated light (a square wave) is decomposed into a finite number of harmonic components, and a numerical solution for the vector radiative transfer equation is obtained for each harmonic that corresponds to the modulation frequency. With this method we study the distortion and the pulse spread in the received signal due to attenuation and scattering. We investigate the propagation characteristic of the modulated signal with different communication system parameters. This information can be used to study communication channel reliability.
