AbstractLocation is one of the basic information required for underwater optical wireless sensor networks (UOWSNs) for different purposes such as relating the sensing measurements with precise sensor positions, enabling efficient geographic routing techniques, and sustaining link connectivity between the nodes. Even though various two-dimensional UOWSNs localization methods have been proposed in the past, the directive nature of optical wireless communications and three-dimensional (3D) deployment of sensors require to develop 3D underwater localization methods. Additionally, the localization accuracy of the network strongly depends on the placement of the anchors. Therefore, we propose a robust 3D localization method for partially connected UOWSNs which can accommodate the outliers and optimize the placement of the anchors to improve the localization accuracy. The proposed method formulates the problem of missing pairwise distances and outliers as an optimization problem which is solved through half quadratic minimization. Furthermore, analysis is provided to optimally place the anchors in the network which improves the localization accuracy. The problem of optimal anchor placement is formulated as a combination of Fisher information matrices for the sensor nodes where the condition of D-optimality is satisfied. The numerical results indicate that the proposed method outperforms the literature substantially in the presence of outliers.

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.
