Signal-to-noise ratio of modulated sources of ASE transmitted over dispersive fiber

Abstract

We investigate, both theoretically and experimentally, the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of modulated amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) transmitted over dispersive fiber. We observe two significant effects; firstly, the signal-to-excess-noise ratio (SNR/sub ex/) varies across the pulse reaching its maximum value near the peak of the detected signal; and… (More)
