The growth of optical communication is tremendous due to the increased demand of bandwidth for different applications. Optical communication provides high speed data rate system and high security, and applying MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) in optical communication fulfils the requirement of increased demand of channel capacity and accuracy. In this paper, we introduce MIMO VLC system, to improve the system performance from adjacent channel interference. MIMO VLC system performance improvement can be done by applying different equalizers such as Zero Forcing (ZF), Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE), ZF – SIC (Successive interference cancellation) and MMSE – SIC.
