Abstract

In this paper, we describe an optical wireless communications system that uses light from an optical fibre access point to provide transparent and bi-directional optical links to nomadic terminals. Full localization and tracking is implemented, and a 50 Gb/s link is demonstrated. The link operates in an indoor environment, with a $ \pm 30^\circ $ field-of-view covering a distance of up to 3 m, and a localization accuracy of 0.05° (2.5 mm pointing accuracy at 3 m) is achieved. This demonstration shows that it is feasible to use an automated system to achieve the required alignment for an ultrahigh data rate fibre-wireless-fibre link.
