Consideration is given to the optical direct-detection channel, and it is shown how simple trellis-coded modulation (TCM) can be used to improve performance or increase throughput (in bits per second) without bandwidth expansion or performance loss. In fact, a modest performance gain can be achieved. Although the approach can be used with other signal constellations, the authors concentrate on signals derived from the pulse-position modulation (PPM) format by allowing overlap. Theoretical motivation for using this signal set, known as overlapping PPM (OPPM), was recently given by I. Bar David and G. Kaplan (1984), who showed a capacity gain when overlap is introduced
