An Analysis of Heterodyne Pulse-Position Modulation Communication Systems Over Unguided, Turbulent Optical Channels

Abstract

This article investigates the performance of the heterodyne detection scheme for optical pulse-position modulation (PPM) communications channels when nonideal laser transmitters are employed. Two aspects of this channel will be considered. First, the limitations of unguided, turbulent channels in accommodating coherent laser communications are addressed… (More)
