Performance Of AM Multi-Channel Fiber Optic Links (1989)

By Rezin Pidgeon, Frank Little, Lee Thompson

This paper is a presentation of how the characteristics and specifications of the basic components of an AM fiber optic link are interrelated to determine system performance. A simple theory and basic equations for calculating link performance is developed. Of particular emphasis is the calculation of carrier-to-noise ratio for a fiber optic link. Factors determining system distortions are discussed, and trade-offs indicated. Performance data for a current state-of-the-art AM system is presented.
