Paper Abstract

Pulse position modulation (PPM) is a format that can potentially offer several advantages when deployed over the optical wireless channel. PPM is characterized by low average power which suits laser operation and elongates battery life in mobile terminals. PPM also offers high sensitivity which is desirable in view of the limited transmitter power as governed by eye safety regulations. The performance of PPM can be significantly impaired by timing jitter. This contribution evaluates the performance and optimal filtering of PPM under timing jitter.
