Trens in the field of Optical Wireless Communications

Final report from the fourth Telecommunications Educational Seminar within the frame of sustainability of "Development of Excellence of the Telecommunication Research Team in Relation to International Cooperation - CZ.1.07/2.3.00/20.0217" project. Seminar was held for three days at the VSB-Technical University of Ostrava campus in the New FEI building in room EC2 from the 20th-22nd of July 2016.

During the fourth Telecommunications Educational Seminar, within the frame of project sustainability, were given lectures by Dr. Wasiu Oyewole Popoola from The University of Edinburgh. Dr. Popoola presented results of his and his group work in the field of Optical Wireless Communications, which is supervised by prof. Harald Hass.

Within seminar two lectures were introduced. First one was dealing with Light, LiFi and Light Quality, which was also title of this lecture. This presentation explains attendees problems connected with utilization of semiconductor light sources for communication and lighting purposes. Also emitted light safety standards in relation to human eye were discussed.

The second presentation was aimed at modulation usage in signal processing of Optical Wireless Communications. This lecture was entitled Spatial Modulation for Optical Wireless Communications and Dr. Popoola explained new principles and approaches for bit rate advancement regarding to electronical signal processing and modulation possibilities.

During seminar were also with Dr. Popoola discussed topics for closer cooperation in the Optical Wireless Communication sphere as well as exchange internships for students of our University.

Thanks to presented lectures the students and all attendees had opportunity to take a closer look into the various problems in the sphere of Optical Wireless Communications.
