Optical Communications Research Laboratory


The equipment of the laboratory enables research and development in the field of photonic communications and optical measurements. We focus on the design and analysis of atmospheric optical links, optimization of their parameters, analysis of optical signal propagation through free atmosphere, study the effect of turbulence on the propagation of an optical beam. We also deal with communication in the visible part of the radiation spectrum (VLC) and vehicle-to-vehicle communication (V2X). We also use optical systems to perform special measurements.
