High-Capacity Free-Space Optical(FSO) Communications Between a Ground Transmitter and a Ground Receiver via a UAV Using Multiplexing of Multiple Orbital-Angular-Momentum(OAM) Beams — PART 1

Unmanned-aerial-vehicle(UAV)

We explore the use of orbital-angular-momentum(OAM) -multiplexing to increase the capacity of free-space data transmission to moving platforms, with an added potential benefit of decreasing the probability of data intercept.

Different columns show the beam helical structures, phase fronts, and corresponding intensity distributions.
