Free-space optics, as the name implies, means the transmission of optical signals through free space or air. Such propagation of optical capacity through air requires the use of light. Light sources can be either LEDs or lasers (light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation). FSO is a simple concept that is similar to optical transmission using fiber-optic cables. The only difference is the medium. Interestingly enough light travels faster through air (approximately 300,000 km/s) than it does through glass (approximately 200,000 km/s), so free-space optical communications could be classified as optical communications at the speed of light. In this paper we will study the FSO System. The paper explains all the necessary details of free space optics link design and discusses the core blocks and parameters associated with FSO system.
