Range Dependence of an Optical Pulse Position Modulation Link in the Presence of Background Noise

Wojciech Zwoliński

Faculty of Physics, University of Warsaw

Wojciech Zwolinski is a student of the third year of the Interdisciplinary Individual Studies in Mathematics and Natural Sciences with a main degree in individual physics and secondary in computer science. From September 2016 until the beginning of 2018 he worked in Quantum Optics Lab, at the University of Warsaw, led by Ph.D. Radosław Łapkiewicz. Since September 2017 he has been working in Quantum Technologies Laboratory at the University of Warsaw, under the supervision of Professor Konrad Banaszek. His research focuses on the description of quantum communication channels.


Introduction We analyze the information efficiency of a deep-space optical communication link with background noise employing the pulse position modulation (PPM) format and a direct-detection receiver based on Geiger-mode... [ view full abstract ]
