Free space optics is a telecommunications technique which isalready being used for everyday exchange of information and hasmany advantages over other techniques (bandwidth, low cost,mobility of the equipment, security, etc.); within the next decade,it is likely to become an integral and essential part ofdata-processing architectures and telecommunications.
A history of wireless optical telecommunications is given, togetherwith a recapitulation of the application of the principles ofelectromagnetism to free-space optics. Coverage is also given tothe transmitters and receivers of optical beams, whih are the basisof any optical communication system. These devices were responsiblefor the first truly significant advances in the performance ofthese systems.
Special attention is given to the problems associated with thepropagation of photons, both in the presence and absence ofobstacles, since these are key issues in gaining an understandingof future telecommunication systems based on wireless optics.Finally, the authors considwer standards, as well as safety andconfidentiality issues.
