Improvement by Impulsive Coding," OSA TOPS on Ultrafast Electronics and
Optoelectronics, Vol. 13, Eds: Martin Nuss and John Bowers, 63-67 (Optical
Society of America, 1997).
Impulsive coding operation of optical receivers is
shown to result in better sensitivities when compared to NRZ. We show that, contrary to
conventional wisdom, the optimum detection bandwidth for impulsive coding is larger than
