Abstract

We verify experimentally, over a dynamic range of 55 dB in the probability distribution, that the amplified spontaneous emission noise of the 0’s from an optically preamplified receiver is degenerate Bose–Einstein distributed. Using the noise parameters extracted from the experiment, we are able to predict the sensitivity of a 10-Gbit/s direct-detection receiver.
