In this letter, we study an interference scenario under a smart interferer which observes color channels and interferes with a visible light communication (VLC) network. We formulate the smart interference problem based on a Stackelberg game and propose an optimal response algorithm to overcome the interference by optimizing transmit power and sub-color channel allocation. The proposed optimization algorithm is composed with Lagrangian dual decomposition and non-linear fractional programming to have stability to get optimum points. Numerical results show that the utility by the proposed algorithm is increased over that of the algorithm based on the Nash game and the baseline schemes.
