The University’s College of Engineering held an electronic symposium on optical communications across free space.

The symposium was organized by the Scientific Affairs Division of the College, entitled Main Challenges for Free Space Optical Communications, and was presented on the Google Meet Platform, by Associate Dean for Administrative and Financial Affairs (Asst. Prof. Nadher Ibrahim Abdul Khaleq).

The symposium talked about optical communications across the free space and how it is a focal point in the communication concept in terms of the transmission of the features of optical fiber communications, and its use without the need for the foundations of the optical fiber network.

The symposium discussed the most important advantages of these systems in terms of providing a wide bandwidth and the absence of the need for a frequency license.

The symposium also addressed the challenges that reduce the efficiency of these systems represented by the fluctuations of the atmosphere as it is the medium carrier and methods of treatment.
