Communication using orbital angular momentum (OAM) modes has recently received a considerable interest in free space optical (FSO) communications. Propagating OAM modes through free space may be subject to atmospheric turbulence (AT) distortions that cause signal attenuation and crosstalk which degrades the system capacity and increases the error probability. In this paper, we propose to enhance the OAM FSO communications in terms of bit error rate and spectral efficiency, for different levels of AT regimes. The performance gain is achieved by introducing orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) with index modulation technique to the OAM FSO system. © 2021 IEEE.
