Abstract

General analytical expressions are derived for the average bit error rate of an intensity modulation and direct detection link using unbounded optical wavefront with on-off keying signalling technique propagating under all possible irradiance fluctuation conditions. These expressions include in a single equation the link performance of most of the proposed statistical models derived until now.
