Abstract

The model of an ideal binary photon counting channel consists of two levels of received signals: the one null, the other with λ received photons on average. The statistical properties of photon arrivals are those of a pure Poisson process, so that the probability that a high transmitted signal is received as a low signal results in p = exp(-λ) and the probability that a low transmitted signal is interpreted by the receiver as high signal is null. No background noise is assumed to affect this transmission but qualitatively similar results can be obtained for the background noise channel.
