Abstract

In this paper, simulation results for the bit error rate (BER) performance and fading penalty of a coherent optical binary polarization shift keying (2PolSK) heterodyne system adopted for free space optical (FSO) communication links with a log-normal atmospheric turbulence model is presented. The conditional and unconditional BER expressions are derived, demonstrating the comprehensive similarity between the 2PolSK and binary frequency shift keying (2FSK) schemes with regards to the system sensitivity. The study shows that 2PolSK offers improved performance compared to the binary amplitude shift keying (2ASK)
