Paper Abstract

An original analysis is presented for the performance of a self-synchronized optical fiber pulse position modulation (PPM) system. The results indicate that the PPM system can offer a significant sensitivity improvement over a comparable PCM system. an original expression is presented for the power spectral density of the cyclostationary PPM format and the results are used to analyze the system self-synchronization and performance under jitter.
