Paper Abstract

The effect of RF phase noise and phase delay fluctuations on the performance of a Quadrature Amplitude Modulated fiber optic link is investigated. Plots showing the bit error rate against the phase noise for 16, 64 and 256 QAM systems are presented. Two techniques are used for evaluating the average error probability performance namely, numerical integration and Taylor series approximation. To alleviate the difficulties in the simulations, phase noise is assumed to have a zero mean Gaussian probability distribution function.
