Numerical estimate of BER in optical systems with strong patterning effects

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A statistical approach to evaluate numerically transmission distances in optical communication systems was described. The proposed systems were subjected to strong patterning effects and strong intersymbol interference. The dependence of transmission distance on the total number of bits was described. Normal and Gaussian distributions were used to derive the error probability.
