Abstract: In this paper we analyse the Bit Error Rate(BER) performance and energy efficiency of Luby Transform (LT) codes when the signals are Binary Phase shift Keying (BPSK )modulated with varying thresholds and transmitted over the Free Space Optical (FSO)Channel in a wireless sensor network. We model the FSO channel using the Gamma-Gamma distribution function and compare the performance for varied turbulence parameters. We also show how the distribution of the BPSK symbols varies as the distribution varies when the turbulence changes from strong to weak. Use of forward error correction helps in the recovery of the original signal even if some transmitted signals are corrupted during transmission. We analyse the FSO system, which employs Luby Transform Codes, which do not have a fixed code rate. They are considered Rateless, and as many codewords are generated as required to recover all the message bits. We show an increase in SNR and reduced energy per bit for the same BER with LT codes as the BPSK threshold increases. � 2013 IEEE.
