The Chernoff upper and lower boundaries are presently noted to be applicable to free space optical communications receiver design, as can be demonstrated in the case of optimum filters and optimum thresholds for MPAM communications. Optimum internal gain and level spacing are also obtainable by these means. Attention is given to M-ary receiver structures, the receiver model used, and receiver structures with either paired filters of M filters.
