Abstract

Utilizing an empirical path loss model proposed in the first paper of a two-part series, the bit error rate performance of short-range non-line-of-sight ultraviolet communication receivers is analyzed. Typical photodetector models and modulation formats are considered. Our results provide semi-analytical prediction of the achievable communication performance as a function of system and channel parameters, and serve as a basis for system design.
