Mitigation of index of refraction turbulence (IRT) effects is crucial in long-range atmospheric communication links. Diversity-transmission is one favorable way for fading compensation. One of several different diversity concepts is the exploitation of the wavelength-dependent index of refraction of the atmosphere, which leads to ideal stochastically independent fading at different wavelengths, depending on the scenario. This concept is here named wavelengthdiversity (WLD). Theoretical analysis and numerical simulation for the strength of this effect are given and verified by experimental tests.
