Paper Abstract

We investigate some limiting characteristics of two- component optoelectronic system for information transmission on the base of number-state model and Brillouin's negentropy principle. The expression for the upper bound of the capacity of considered communication system is obtained. It is shown, that the capacity of the whole system is substantially limited by the speed characteristics of an optical subsystem. Only in the limited power range of optical signal it is determined by speed of the information transmission in an electronic subsystem. Such a consideration enables us to get deeper insight into the basic principles of information processing in channels with different nature of carriers.
