Information theory in optoelectronic systems: Introduction to the feature

Published

Journal Article

There has been an explosion of recent interest concerning information theory in optoelectronic (OE) systems. This interest has been motivated in part by (1) the accelerating deployment of OE components into digital systems, (2) the blurring of the analog-digital interface within many OE applications, and (3) the increasing sophistication and complexity of computational tools. These trends are being driven by revolutionary improvements in both OE devices and electronic processors together with increasing demand for high-speed and high-capacity solutions. This feature addresses the application of information- and communication-theoretic concepts, algorithms, and techniques to important problems in OE system analysis and design. © 2000 Optical Society of America.
