Abstract

In this paper, a single-scatter propagation model is developed that expands the classical model by considering a finite receiver-aperture size for non-line-of-sight communication. The expanded model overcomes some of the difficulties with the classical model, most notably, inaccuracies in scenarios with short range and low elevation angle where significant scattering takes place near the receiver. The developed model does not approximate the receiver aperture as a point, but uses its dimensions for both field-of-view and solid-angle computations. To verify the model, a Monte Carlo simulation of photon transport in a turbid medium is applied. Simulation results for temporal responses and path losses are presented at a wavelength of 260 nm that lies in the solar-blind ultraviolet region.
