Abstract

In this paper, the performance of the variable weight multiple pulse-position modulation (MPPM) coding technique in an atmospheric optical communication environment under gamma-gamma optical scintillation is analyzed, proposing a closed-form expression for the average bit error rate (BER). This study is based on a hyperexponential fitting of the conditional BER in absence of turbulence fluctuations, leading to closed-form expressions that characterize the behavior of this nonlinear coding scheme. Finally, conditional and average BER expressions proposed here are corroborated with Monte Carlo simulations results.
