Based on the analysis of the two main problems of atmospheric channel in free space optics (FSO), aiming at the problem of laser atmospheric channel especially the problems of frequency selective fading and multipath effect in complex turbulent environment, the suppression method is proposed based on OFDM turbulence effect, the FSO-OFDM system is built, the baseband model of this system and the signal of multi-carrier modulation and demodulation method are studied. First of all, this article systematically analyzes the mechanism of turbulence effect of atmospheric channel, and discusses the model of plane wave laser communication system under the influence of atmospheric turbulence, the space optical communication system model of Gaussian beam of a logarithmic normal turbulent channel is established under the influence of atmospheric turbulence, the probability density function of light intensity is deduced, the methods for analyzing the effects of various atmospheric turbulence effects on system performance using the signal-to-noise ratio probability density function; the OFDM multi-carrier modulation scheme of FSO-OFDM system is designed, the baseband mode model of FSO-OFDM system is constructed, and the modulation and demodulation principle of its signal is studied using this model. Finally, FSO-OFDM system is realized by using MATLAB, and the FSO communication system under the multipath interference is simulated, experiments on bit error rate characteristics under different guard intervals are performed. It is confirmed that the FSO-OFDM system has a strong ability to resist multipath interference and frequency selective fading, as well as good bit error rate (BER) performance. It can effectively solve the problem of intersymbol interference and the reliable link, and has a very broad application prospect and using value.
