MIMO Optical Wireless Channels Using Halftoning
— Two-dimensional (2D) optical intensity channels exist in a variety of applications including holographic storage, page-oriented memories, optical interconnects, 2D barcodes, as well as MIMO wireless optical links. This paper considers the capacity of such channels when the transmitted signal is binarylevel. Strict spatial alignment between transmitter and receiver is not required nor is independence among the spatial channels. Spatial discrete multitone modulation is combined with digital image halftoning to produce a binary-level transmit image. Unlike earlier work, this paper considers imagers with pixels of fixed size and quantifies the tradeoff between frame rate, array size and capacity per frame. An experimental prototype pixelated wireless optical channel is constructed, and the channel parameters are measured. With a measured channel model, rates on the order of 450 Mbps are predicted for a 1 m link using 0.5 megapixel arrays at a frame rate of 7 kfps.
