Underwater wireless optical communication (UWOC) has gained increasing research interest worldwide from both academic and industrial communities, because of its high bandwidth, compact antennas, low latency, cost-effectiveness, and low power consumption. In the underwater world, the wireless optical links can be complementary to or even more competitive than its acoustic counterpart. Nevertheless, the hostile underwater environment sets up natural obstacles to most information carriers, including the lightwave, even at the right wavelength. Much attention has been recently paid to this interesting and challenging area, leading to impressive progresses. Hence, we launched this focus issue to discuss recent advances and progress in UWOC, and aimed to further stimulate future advancements in this emerging field.
