AbstractIn this paper, we discuss about recent experimental advances in underwater wireless optical communications (UWOC) over various underwater channel water types using different modulation schemes as well as modelling and describing the statistical properties of turbulence-induced fading in underwater wireless optical channels using laser beam intensity fluctuations measurements.

Threshold-Based Multiple Optical Signal Selection Scheme for Free-Space Optical Wavelength Division Multiplexing SystemsNam, Sung Sik; Alouini, Mohamed-Slim; Zhang, Lin; Ko, Young-Chai (Journal of Optical Communications and Networking, The Optical Society, 2017-11-15) [Article]We propose a threshold-based multiple optical signal selection scheme (TMOS) for free-space optical wavelength division multiplexing systems. With this scheme, we can obtain higher spectral efficiency while reducing the possible complexity of implementation caused by the beam-selection scheme and without a considerable performance loss. To characterize the performance of our scheme, we statistically analyze the operation characteristics under conventional detection conditions (i.e., heterodyne detection and intensity modulation/direct detection techniques) with log-normal turbulence while taking into consideration the impact of pointing error. More specifically, we derive exact closed-form expressions for the outage probability, the average bit error rate, and the average spectral efficiency while adopting an adaptive modulation. Some selected results show that TMOS increases the average spectral efficiency while maintaining a minimum average bit error rate requirement.
Polarization Micro-Optics: circular polarization from a Fresnel Rhomb 3D printed on an optical fiberBertoncini, Andrea; Liberale, Carlo (IEEE Photonics Technology Letters, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018-09-20) [Article]High resolution fabrication of three dimensional polymeric structures with Direct Laser Writing (DLW) holds a unique potential for the miniaturization of bulk optical elements. This has been so far mainly demonstrated for the fabrication of reflective, refractive and phase-mask micro-optics. Here we show the use of DLW for the fabrication of a miniaturized phase retarder element, a Fresnel Rhomb, which acts as a broadband quarter-wave plate. We show the integration of the Fresnel Rhomb onto a polarization-maintaining optical fiber, converting linearly polarized light from the fiber into circularly polarized light over a very broad spectral range.
Optical manipulation of microparticles with the momentum flux transverse to the optical axisCheng, Shubo; Xia, Tian; Liu, Mengsi; Xu, Shan; Gao, Shufang; Zhang, Geng; Tao, Shaohua (Optics & Laser Technology, Elsevier BV, 2019-01-03) [Article]The beams with phase gradients along the line trajectory, i.e., with the momentum flux transverse to the optical axis were generated with the beam shaping method and applied for optical manipulations in this paper. The phase distributions of the reconstructed beam in the focal plane of the objective and the moving velocity of the trapped microparticles were experimentally investigated. The experimental results showed that the moving velocity of the trapped microparticles is linearly dependent on the phase gradient possessed by the reconstructed beam. Furthermore, a generated curve beam was used to transport microparticles quickly and automatically along the curved route to avoid an obstacle. The generation method of the beams with phase gradients is simple. The beams would have potential applications in the fields such as optical trapping and optical sorting.
