In this paper, we investigate optical wireless repeaters as relay terminals between a transmitter and a user in an Infrared Optical Wireless Communication (IROWC) system. A delay adaptation method is introduced to solve the problem of irregular signal arrival time from different relay terminals. Three different relay terminal deployment scenarios were investigated in a typical two-phase relay IROWC system with the proposed delay adaptation method. The simulation results indicate that the proposed system has better impulse response compared to the conventional system and that the root-mean-square delay spread of the relay system with the delay adaptation method is on average 30% less than the conventional system.
