Languages of publication
In this paper, the performance of an underwater optical wireless communications system is theoretically analyzed, using 4-PPM modulation technique and an avalanche photodiodes APD receiver over underwater environment channels. Based on the line of sight (LOS) geometrical model for optical beam propagation horizontally on an underwater medium and combined with signal to noise ratio model for Si, Ge and InGaAs APD and BER; then the impacts of the distance of transmission, power of the transmitter under Jerlov water types (I, IA, IB) are analyzed. The characteristics of bit error rate BER and channel capacity for 4-PPM optical modulation technique are studied under different APD detector and Jerlov water types. Simulation results indicate that the performance of PPM and Jerlov type (I) are more suited for an underwater optical wireless communication. On the other hand, we discuss the suitability of avalanche photodiodes under this modulation technique, where the photodiode Si APD has more advantage compared with the other detectors when used as a receiver in an underwater optical communication.
