Investigation of Ber Performances in Chaotic-Secured Optical Fiber Communication Systems using the 4-PAM Modulation Scheme
This paper presents a numerical simulation investigation on the bit error rate in a chaotic-secured fiber channel and a conventional fiber channel when propagating independently. The investigated communication system uses the pulse-amplitude modulation scheme (4-PAM) at the bit rate of 10 Gbps, the fiber length of 100 km, and the operation wavelength of 1550 nm. Our simulation results demonstrate both chaotic and non-chaotic transmission channels can well operate with the bit rate up to 20 Gbps with the BER smaller than 10-5 if dispersion and fiber loss issues are appropriately compensated without needing forwarderror-correction, showing high potential in physically secured optical fiber communication systems.
