The optical wireless communication systems are rapidly gaining popularity as effective means of transferring data at high rates over short distances. These systems facilitate rapidly deployable, lightweight, high-capacity communication without licensing fees and tariffs. On the other hand, the performance of this new technology depends strongly on the atmospheric conditions and the parameters of the link such as the length and the operation wavelength. In this work, we extract closed form mathematical expression for the evaluation of the average (ergodic) capacity of such a system, using the log-normal and gamma-gamma distribution, in order to model the atmospheric turbulence conditions and we study the influence of the above parameters on it.
