Abstract

This paper studies the effects of the obstacle on non-line-of-sight ultraviolet communication links using multiple-scatter model based on a Monte Carlo method. On the condition that transmitter beam and receiver FOV just pass the top of the obstacle, and ranges is fixed, the received energy density is at its maximum. The path loss increases when the transmitter or the receiver is much near to the obstacle, because the nearby common scattering volumes decrease intensively. The optimal received range decreases with the increasing of the distance between transmitter and obstacle. The predictions are validated with experimental measurements. This work can be used for the guidance of UV system design and network technology to apply in complex surroundings, such as mountain, buildings, etc.
