In this paper, a novel single-scatter path loss model is presented for non-line-of-sight (NLOS) ultraviolet (UV) channels. This model is developed based on the spherical coordinate system and extends the previous restricted models to handle the general noncoplanar case of arbitrarily pointing transmitter and receiver. Numerical examples on path loss are illustrated for various system geometries. These results are verified with a Monte Carlo (MC) model, demonstrating the validity of this model.
