Beat noise effects on spectrum-sliced WDM

  title={Beat noise effects on spectrum-sliced WDM},
  author={Walid Mathlouthi and Mourad Menif and L. A. Rusch},
In this paper, we review, first, the different noise terms involved in amplified and filtered spontaneous emission detection using the standard beating theory (or the semi-classical field expansion theory) of the noise in optical amplifiers. We derive BER calculations using the following approaches: 1) non-ideal electrical and optical filters combined with a Gaussian approximation for the resultant noise process (extension of Ref. 1) and 2) an ideal integrate and dump electrical filter and an… CONTINUE READING
