Capacity of Optical Intensity Channels with Peak and Average Power Constraints
— The design and analysis of capacity-approaching input signalling for optical intensity channels are presented. Both peak and average optical power constraints are considered in the analysis. The capacity-achieving distribution for this channel is discrete with a finite number of mass points. In practice, finding this distribution requires solving a complex non-linear optimization at every SNR. In this work, we present a closed form discrete capacity-approaching distribution derived via source entropy maximization. The computation of this distribution is substantially less complex than previous optimization approaches and can be easily computed for different SNRs. The information rates using the derived maxentropic distribution are shown to be negligibly far away from the channel capacity found by nonlinear optimization in the SNR range -6 to 6 dB.
