Highly non-Gaussian, short-tailed photocurrent distributions due to laser-phase-induced intensity noise have been observed in fiber-optic systems employing distributed-feedback lasers and wideband receivers. This behavior, which has implications for the correct prediction of performance in systems containing intentional or spurious interferometers, results(More)
Variance-stabilizing transforms for families of Rayleigh and, more generally, for Weibull random variables are derived and shown to be exact. These transforms, when applied to appropriate noisy images, render signal-dependent noise signal-independent. Their utility is that, after applying the transforms, classical estimation procedures devised for additive,(More)
