Simulation of statistical errors in a high-rate fiber-optic communications line

  • E. G. Shapiro
Fiber Optics


Simple analytical formulas are derived for the approximation of the error probability of data transmission in fiber-optic communications lines. A direct numerical simulation of the propagation of narrow and wide optical pulses is performed. A good agreement of the analytical approximation and the numerical results is demonstrated.
