Performance Analysis of Relay Assisted Mixed Dual-Hop RF-FSO Systems with Pointing Errors Conference Paper uri icon


  • 2019, Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd. In this work, a fixed-gain amplify-and-forward (AF)- relay assisted dual-hop RF-FSO communication system with pointing errors is analyzed by considering Rayleigh/Mlaga (M)- distributed turbulence channel. For this mixed RF-FSO cooperative system, a novel closed form analytical expressions are obtained for moment generating function (MGF), outage probability and average bit error rate (BER) for various binary and M-ary modulation techniques. Additionally, by using the asymptotic expansion of the Meijers G function at the high SNR regime, we derive new asymptotic expressions for the CDF, outage probability, and the average BER in terms of simple elementary functions.
