Abstract

A simple and computationally efficient model for free-space optical (FSO) communications is presented, valid for an unbounded plane wave operating under weak irradiance fluctuation conditions. Obtained results corroborate very good agreement with theoretical calculations, showing that consideration of the channel coherence may be a key factor to understand in depth FSO communications.
