Abstract : In this report, the effects of pulse dispersion and noise in a graded-index fiber optic communication system which utilizes pulse amplitude modulation are examined. It is shown that pulse dispersion can result in intersymbol interference and degraded error performance of the system. Expressions for RMS output pulse width, intersymbol interference, optimum threshold receiver level, and error probabilities are developed in terms of system parameters. (Author)
