  journal={Journal of Lightwave Technology},
This paper investigates both theoretically and numerically the performance limitations due to the combined effect of relative intensity noise (RIN) and intermodulation distortion of broadband optical single sideband/subcarrier multiplexing (OSSB/SCM) systems. The analysis includes intermodulation distortion combined with RIN introduced by the laser source and by optical preamplification. System performance is evaluated in terms of bit error rate for SCM systems using optically preamplified… CONTINUE READING
