Signal formats and error correction in optical transmission
Comptes Rendus. Physique, Volume 4 (2003) no. 1, pp. 95-104.

We review the advantages and drawbacks of the main optical modulation formats, comparing the standard intensity-modulated ones to more sophisticated phase and intensity modulated formats for high capacity or long distance transmission. Furthermore, different Forward Error Correction solutions, from standard Reed Solomon (RS) to block turbo codes, are presented and their impact on optical transmission system design is discussed.

Nous présentons ici les avantages et les inconvénients des principaux formats de modulation optique. Pour accroı̂tre la capacité et/ou la distance de transmission, les modulations habituelles en intensité cèdent progressivement la place à des formats plus complexes, modulés à la fois en intensité et en phase. De plus, différents types de codage correcteur d'erreurs appliqués aux systèmes de transmission optique sont décrits et leurs performances comparées.
