Abstract

Until recently, little has been done to study the effect of higher modulation frequencies (>100MHz) or short (<2ns) pulse durations on forward-scattered light in ocean water. This forward-scattered light limits image resolution and may ultimately limit the bandwidth of a point-to-point optical communications link. The purpose of this work is to study the propagation of modulated light fields at frequencies up to 1GHz. Results from laboratory tank experiments and their impact on future underwater optical imaging and communications systems are discussed.
