Kavehrad book explores optical wireless applications

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – With the increased popularity of white light LEDs, research in multiple-source optical wireless applications is rapidly expanding. Mohsen Kavehrad, W. L. Weiss Chair Professor of Electrical Engineering, and two of his recent doctoral graduate students, M. I. Sakib Chowdhury and Zhou Zhou, have been conducting research in this field for quite a few years, and they have written an extensive book on the topic.

“Short Range Optical Wireless: Theory and Applications,” available Nov. 16 on Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble, is about the fundamental aspects of multiple-source optical wireless applications, including Visible Light Communications.

Kavehrad is known as a world expert in optical wireless applications designs and was asked to write the book by John Wiley & Sons, Inc., also known as Wiley, a global publishing company that specializes in academic publishing.

Much of Kavehrad, Chowdhury and Zhou’s research has been in Penn State's Center on Optical Wireless Applications. The center, funded by the National Science Foundation, brings together industry partners and research laboratories that have an interest in optical wireless applications designs.
