Abstract

We propose an asymmetric 3×2 multi-input multi-output (MIMO) system for polarization division multiplexing (PDM) transmission in visible light communication (VLC). In PDM transmission, independent channels are constructed by polarization orthogonality, which is vulnerable to misalignment of polarization between the transmitter and the receiver. Although PDM-based VLC system may not maintain polarization orthogonality, the proposed asymmetric MIMO system can achieve the polarization diversity required for a multichannel system. We experimentally demonstrate the performance enhancement of PDM VLC transmission using the proposed asymmetric 3×2 MIMO technique.
