  • In pure seawater, the transmission window is in the blue-green light band, and blue light has good transmission characteristics. This paper proposes an underwater wireless optical communication system that uses a 470 nm LED array stitching structure, increasing the diverging angle. At the same time, we use Fresnel lens as the optical antenna realizing the wide field of view receiving. At an underwater distance of 20 m, this system could successfully achieve reliable communication at a rate of 5 Mbit/s (data rate) and a BER of 10−6, which lays a foundation for subsequent underwater dynamic laser communication systems.
