Abstract

Aim of this thesis is to try to generalize the results of [1] to the
MIMO free-space optical intensity channel. For this generalization to
be possible, it is concluded that the channel should be decomposed
into several multiple-input single-output channels with possibly
correlation between the noise of the different channels. Moreover, if
at least one of these components contains more than one input, a
special condition in the amount of the average-power is required. The
presence of the correlation in the noise does not increase much the
complexity of the problem at high SNR. On the contrary, the situation
deteriorates at low SNR. When the above conditions are combined
appropriately, tight asymptotic bounds are derived in the most of the
cases.
